BC School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program

Students receive a fruit or vegetable snack in the classroom. School coordinators in each school will prepare snack bins for every classroom. Students will eat the snack during class time, not at recess or at lunch. This snack is not meant to replace the foods students normally eat at school. Students can make their own decision on whether to taste the fruits or vegetables offered. Food-allergic children should only be offered food approved by their parents. Please notify the school if your child has any food allergies.
