Every day we start our time together with a home provided snack. We noticed that some of our friends have finished all their snack & lunch during the school day and some prefer not to eat what remains for one convincing reason or another.
We do keep a supply of individually wrapped saltine crackers on hand and share them as needed with students. The children seem to love them, and in a pinch they are an adequate supplement, but they are not meant to replace a nutritious snack.
Following the children’s lead, we decided to take a survey! And we would like to share the results with you.
We asked one question:
If you could pick your after school snack what would it be?
60% Responded a Sandwich
60% Responded Fruit
20% Responded Crackers or Chips
30% Responded Yogurt or Yogurt Drink
15% Responded Sweets
We should also note a few honorable mentions from our survey:
fish sticks, dumplings, and grilled cheese sandwiches!
