Welcome back to all of our students and teachers – we hope you enjoyed a fun filled summer! We look forward to a new and exciting school year and hope to see our Kids Eat Smart Clubs up and running over the next few weeks. Here’s a few tips to get you started with your KES Club while getting the kids involved:
- Create a menu – ask the kids what items that would like to see on the menu – do a poll to include items that fall within the School Food Guidelines for them to choose from.
- Host a stock the shelves bonanza with the school – have each grade level stock up items i.e.. 100% Juice Boxes for Grade 1’s, Whole Grain Cereal for Grade 2’s, Yogurt Tubes for Grade 3’s, etc.
- Create a volunteer schedule – don’t forget to ask the kids – kids can be a great help within your KES Clubs !
- Register for the TD Walk to Breakfast – One simple fundraiser each school should participate in each year is the Walk – Register today to ensure you get your Prize Packs!
