When I saw the title of this thread I thought.....oh, I hope someone is having the same KG snack issues that I am. Ok, not exactly, mine are worse!
The school has gone through a big nutrition program, which we are totally cooperating with. The teacher - we love her otherwise - gives things like Apple Bits (aka Fruit Loops) and chocolate chip cookies for snack. Ok, not every day, but several times a week.
I already complained to the teacher. I already asked how I could help and she said she tries to fit the snack with the letter of the week and if I had ideas, that would help. I sent a list of ideas. Anyway, c'mon, how hard is 'C': carrots, cheese, crackers, etc. You don't have to jump to cookies.
We talked about this with DS and told him cookies were not good food. He could tell right away that we were criticizing his teacher and he started to cry. He adores her and he loves school. It is ok to let this go, right? He's learning tons and he's happy and the snack thing is our only real complaint.
Working to let it go........
