Food for Thought Program

posted Oct 19, 2016, 6:27 AM by Iris Meehan   [ updated Oct 19, 2016, 6:28 AM ]
In coordination with our Kindergarten and 1st grade classes Tremont School PTO will be implementing a healthy snack program.

What is this program? Tremont School PTO will provide healthy snacks for all classes to enjoy all week

How does this work? Every Monday Tremont School PTO members will provide each classroom (kindergarten-8th grade) with a Food For For Thought basket. These baskets will be available all day all week for kids to have a snack from if they need one.

What is a Food For Thought Basket? A basket full of fresh fruits and veggies and other healthy snacks.

What is the purpose of this program? The goal is to help educate our kids on good food choices for their growing bodies by providing them with those good choices during the school week

How can you help? Below is a wish list of specific foods the kids have liked and the teachers have approved. Or there is a money donation jar in the office.

We will be piloting this program from Tuesday October 11- November 10 to see how it goes.
