Nutrition at New Life
We appreciate our parents’ efforts to provide a nutritious, well planned lunch for their children. We know it can be challenging and we want to make lunch time a positive experience for all of our children. For this reason, we ask that all parents, as per the Parent Handbook, pack foods that meet the following requirements:
If your child’s lunch needs to be kept cold, please pack an ice pack. Fridges are not available for lunches.
Microwaves are available to heat up food to a maximum of 30 seconds. Please do not include items that require multiple steps for heating up (i.e. Easy Mac).
All foods should be items your child can eat with minimal assistance.
Please do not pack any carbonated beverages. We prefer that you bring a cup of water, but if your child requires milk/juice, please pack a separate cup for refills of water as we can not use the same cup for milk/juice and water.
We are a peanut free school, so please do not pack any peanut products (peanut butter, Reese’s, or granola bars with peanuts). A great alternative is almond butter, cashew butter, or hazel nut spread.
We appreciate your assistance in helping us keep lunch time a great time!
