Eating Healthy

Nurturing our bodies as well as our minds and spirits is important at Journey School.  Meals and snacks eaten at school provide additional opportunities to acknowledge our appreciation for the natural world.  For example, snacks prepared in Kindergarten offer whole food ingredients and encourage reverence for healthy bodies and a healthy earth.  Families are encouraged to support this philosophy at home by following these guidelines:

  • Send snacks, lunches, and celebration treats to school that use healthy, whole food ingredients, fruits and vegetables (organic if possible), and as little processed sugar and prepackaged food as possible.
  • Gum, candy, soda, juices, as well as other unhealthy foods are not allowed.
  • Please pack only water for your child to drink at school.  Drinking fountains and purified water are also available at school.
  • The avoidance of commercialism and excessive food packaging is another aspect of our commitment to environmental consciousness.  Please try to send snacks and lunches in reusable containers with reusable utensils.  Lunch baskets or boxes should also be void of media-commercial images.  We request cloth napkins.
