Snacks at School
We encourage healthy food choices and recommend that students drink water while at school. We encourage students to bring a water bottle (labeled with their name) each day and to take the bottle home each evening for washing. We also encourage students to make healthy snack and lunch choices and discourage them from bringing candy and high sugar foods to school. We provide a snack break in the morning so please think about how you will help your child understand what is for lunch and what would be a good snack.
Please remember to send the proper eating utensils to school with your child’s lunch and/or snacks.
The Calgary Board of Education does not ban nuts or any other food. We can’t say that any of our environments are “nut free.” At the CBE, we work with parents to discourage them from sending their children to school with foods that might be potentially anaphylactic for other students.
See our Illness & Medical page for more allergy information.

Briar Hill Healthy Hunger lunches are offered every Wednesday (with the exception of the weeks that our school has a previously arranged Pizza Lunch). Menus are closed 5 days prior to the lunch taking place.
