Nutritious snacks and lunches can be a challenge in a world full of fast and convenience foods. Having a policy in place at your Montessori school is often helpful to assist parents in determining what are appropriate foods to send with their child.
It is helpful to have these guidelines published in the parent handbook and posted in each Montessori classroom as a reminder to parents. It is also important to talk to the children about which foods are acceptable to bring to school.
As much as possible, NAMC’s web blog reflects the Montessori curriculum as provided in its teacher training programs. We realize and respect that Montessori schools are unique and may vary their schedules and offerings in accordance with the needs of their individual communities. We hope that our readers will find our articles useful and inspiring as a contribution to the global Montessori community. © the North American Montessori Center - originally posted in its entirety at Montessori Teacher Training on Tuesday, June 19, 2007.
