Northport Nursery School Safe Snacks

On your child’s designated snack day, he/she will bring in a snack from our Safe Snack List to share with his/her classmates. All snacks that are brought in will need to be pre-packaged and easy to serve with the exception of fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables must be prepared in our kitchen to avoid cross contamination. For example, pre-sliced apple packages and pre-cut vegetable platters will be sent home. Your child’s teacher will let you know if you need to be aware of any food allergies.

We are sensitive to students with food allergies and work diligently to accommodate children with gluten, peanut/tree nut, soy and other allergies. A system of checks and balances ensures that the food offered to our students has been approved by parents and staff.
