Promoting a Healthy School Environment

Birthday parties and holiday celebrations at school provide a unique opportunity to help make healthful eating fun and exciting for children. Liberty Elementary has had the wonderful opportunity to have nutrition education available to all students this year through some grant funding and as a result we would like to encourage Healthy Celebrations.

If you are looking for something to bring instead of cupcakes, cookies, and candy, try these ideas for healthier celebrations:
  • Low-fat flavored milk, 100% juice, sparkling punch or flavored water
  • Fresh fruit, fruit and cheese kabobs, or fruit with low-fat whipped topping
  • Dried fruit (raisins, banana chips) or 100% fruit snacks
  • Whole-grain crackers with cheese
  • Pretzels, popcorn, or graham crackers
  • Hot pretzels
  • Low-fat pudding or squeezable yogurt
  • Granola bars
