Foods for school celebrations often include unhealthy choices such as cupcakes, candy, cookies, and soda. While there is nothing wrong with an occasional treat, unhealthy foods are often the norm rather than the exception. Our School Board’s Wellness Policy and Procedures 8510 were updated to comply with USDA Local School Wellness Policy requirements.
Celebration foods are available to parents to purchase for their child’s class through their school cafeteria- Pasco Smart Snack Celebrations. Please reach out to our cafeteria manager at (727) 774-3578 at least 2 weeks prior to the celebration. These foods are already Smart Snack approved for ease of access and can be delivered directly to your child’s classroom.
We strongly encourage and recommend the following for celebrations:
- Donut Holes
- Mini Cupcakes
- Goodie Bags with pencils, erasers, stickers
- Cafeteria Celebration (see information above)
