School Snack Policy

In an effort to encourage healthy eating habits, Otken School will allow only "healthy" snacks to be brought to school to be eaten at recess or after lunch. Cola drinks, flavored drinks, chips, candy, cookies, gum, etc. will not be allowed. We want you to encourage your child to eat a good breakfast at home or at school before classes begin in the mornings and to eat a healthy lunch in the cafeteria or from home. A list of acceptable snacks follows:
 
Fresh fruit
Fruit drinks (must contain real fruit juice)
Bottled water
Granola bars
Graham crackers
Peanut butter and crackers
Cheese and crackers
Cheese sticks
 
This list is not all inclusive, but please check with the administrators before sending any other type of snacks.
