getting into the swing of things

imageWe’re slowly getting into the rhythm of the school year.  Class parents have been assigned and now the Health+Wellness efforts begin.  Every year the same questions come up-

How does snack work in the classroom?

How are birthday celebrations handled?

How will the class celebrate holidays?

Taking things one step at a time, month by month, protects our sanity and makes the school H+W tasks possible.  But the goal should always remain the same- Provide students with good fuel 4 school that is healthy, affordable and convenient.  It’s not always easy to accomplish these at the same time but it can be done.

Check out these suggestions for healthier Halloweens and ways to have non-food focused celebrations and you can always refer to The Bradford Food Guide as well.
