Please choose your child's snack with nutrition and energy in mind rather than empty calories. Daily snacks and lunches should be healthy, low fat, and low sugar.
Snacks and Food in School
It is difficult to keep up with the ever changing variety of snack products that are on the market which would include new product offerings (or changes to existing products), ingredient/recipe changes, and changes in manufacturing facilities. You may wish to visit the website snacksafely.com for more information on allergy friendly snacks; or view their Safe Snack Guide at https://snacksafely.com/safe-snack-guide/ which is updated periodically throughout the year.
Parents/Guardians: It is your responsibility to provide snacks that are Peanut and Tree Nut Free. An approved snack list will NO longer be provided.
We highly recommend that you always read the product label for all snacks before purchasing a product because manufacturers may change their ingredients and processes at any time.
Students are asked not to bring peanut or nut containing products for their classroom snacks. All classrooms are peanut free.
DO NOT Purchase items for snacks at school that have allergy and ingredient alerts such as:
- May contain Peanut or Tree Nuts.
- Processed on shared equipment with Peanuts or Tree Nuts.
- Manufactured in a plant with Peanut or Tree Nuts.
- Contains Peanut or Tree Nut ingredients.
- This list is not all-inclusive.
We realize there are many other students with other allergies as well such as wheat or dairy among other items. These allergies are typically present when a food has been ingested. For this reason we ask that NO students share food with another student.
- No food may be brought in for birthday parties for consumption either at school or to be sent home.
- The child can be honored in a variety of ways, other than with the sharing of edible treats.
Typically, ASCA celebrates the following: Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day. Classroom parties will be focused on activities rather than being focused on food.
A peanut-free snack/treat may ONLY be provided by ASCA and all efforts will be made to accommodate as many allergies as possible. NO other food may be served/provided or used for games at any holiday parties. Food may not be sent home.
All Saints Catholic Academy reserves the right to further restrict or modify the above policies.
