NUTRITION POLICY The intent of Taylor School’s Nutrition Policy is to provide a guideline to assist in making healthy choices when packing snacks and lunches. It is not to criticize or evaluate food that is brought to school.
1. We encourage healthy and homemade snacks and lunches that include all 4 food groups. The morning snack in particular should be sugar free and nutritious (eg. nuts, cheese, fruit, yogurt, whole wheat breads, raw fruits and vegetables, etc.).
2. We encourage parents to reduce the amount of non-healthy pre-packaged foods and snacks.
3. Taylor School is a pop and energy drink free zone. Such beverages will be disposed of or sent home at the end of the day with your child. Taylor School will continue to promote healthy eating and active living through the food offered in school, nutrition education and physical education.
