Food/Allergy Information

At Extraordinary Kids, providing a weekly snack is NOT a component of our program. We do however feel that at times food complements the lesson, reinforces a concept, or provides a recognizable link to a different culture.

The lists below are foods that will be tasted or used during the lesson shown. In selecting our food items we try our best to be sensitive to our students’ allergies and other special requirements. We know we cannot always meet everyone's individual needs; therefore, the products will be available for you to look at the week before they are used. If you have a concern, please let the classroom teachers know and feel free to provide an alternative item if needed.

Original food packaging is available on site.  Parents/guardians are encouraged to read ingredient labels to determine if there is any reason that the food is unsuitable for their child.
