No Child Left Without a Healthy Snack!

My students need healthy fruit and vegetable snacks such as sweet potato chips, dried fruit and fruit strips, to provide nutrients to help keep them energized throughout the school day.

My Students

I am blessed to teach third grade at a wonderful Title I School in Northeast North Carolina. Our students are loving, hard working, easily motivated and care about each other and their success! They thrive on competitions and reaching goals set for them throughout the school year.

Our students get excited, work harder and stay more engaged in their academics after they have had their brain break and working snack time.

We are a diverse school consisting of students and families from various backgrounds and cultures as well as Coast Guard families. They are each unique and have a special way of winning our hearts with their kindness and thoughtfulness. We have truly become a family!

My Project

Our 2nd & 3rd graders need healthy snacks as an essential part of a growing child’s diet. Childhood is a critical time for growth and development, and healthy snacks provide important nutrients that your child needs between meals. In our school, we provide a mid morning brain break and working snack time daily. Most of our students remember to bring snacks to school each day, but some of our students come to school without a snack and it hurts my heart to see the looks on their faces as their classmates have a snack to eat and they do not. I have come to understand what a necessity it is to ensure all students are provided with a healthy snack at school in order to meet the nutrient demands, such as the five fruits and vegetables a day recommendation for some of the students in our population to have healthy growing bodies and brains.

This will ensure that all socio-economic groups of students on our hallway, including those that may be living in a shelter due to temporary homelessness, in a friend's home, or other family member's home temporarily, will have at least one nutritious snack each school day.

This will ensure they will not have to try and concentrate on school work while their stomachs are growling.

The absence of snacks at school or choosing unhealthy items to snack on can have a major impact on various aspects of a student's focus and health.

Children need a steady supply of nutrients to fuel their bodies and brains so that they grow and develop properly. This will ensure that all socio-economic groups of students on our hallway, including those that may be living in a shelter, in a friend's home, or other family member's home temporarily, will have at least one nutritious snack each school day. These requested healthy snacks will provide that for each 2nd and 3rd grade student leaving no one without.
