Healthy Celebrating

In school, children love to celebrate holidays or birthdays with a class party. Most of the time, this means a lot of unhealthy junk food like cupcakes and juice boxes. Consider incorporating a new policy that would make these celebrations healthier. For example, if food is necessary for the party, require more of the provided snacks to be fruits and vegetables. Some classrooms have started adopting a no outside food policy and instead find different ways to celebrate the birthdays or holidays. The Go NAPSACC program provides tips on writing new policies and ideas for implementing them. In this guide, you will find month-by-month ideas on foods to introduce and healthy ways to celebrate in the classroom. Do you have ideas to add?
