We would encourage children to have a healthy recess snack. Research shows that children learn and retain information better when they have had water to drink and have eaten a healthy snack. As an environmentally conscious school, we recommend “garbage-less” snacks and encourage our students to compost food waste.
Additionally, we have children at our school who are allergic to nuts and related nut products. The specifics and the severity are different for each individual. At Glendale School we discourage the consumption of these nut products at recess and during the lunch hour.
