        Snacks—Child Nutrition Advisory Committee recommendations

        To Parents and Guardians:

        The Fort Plain Central School District is committed to providing a school environment that promotes and protects children’s health, well-being and the ability to learn by fostering healthy eating and physical activity. The district has established a wellness committee, which has developed a local wellness policy. A copy of this policy is available in the District office or on this website. View Fort Plain CSD’s Wellness Policy.

        In accordance with this policy, we are asking teachers and parents to work toward providing healthier snacks and treats. Below you will find a list of suggested snacks that could take the place of “traditional” snacks such as cupcakes, candy, and cookies, snacks which have little nutritional value and high fat and/or sugar content. Please make every effort to choose items from this list when sending refreshments for your child’s class. Items marked with an asterisk (*) may contain nuts. Your child’s teacher is aware of students with nut or other allergies.

        In addition, you will find that our cafeteria meals and snacks have been modified to meet guidelines for healthier eating. As always, feel free to contact building principals with your questions or concerns. Thank You.
