Nutritional Information for Children
Timucuan Elementary School is a
promoter of healthful habits in children. As nutrition is an
important part of a child’s development, we encourage you to
pack only wholesome foods for snack or lunch. From our
perspective, excessive sweets affect the child’s disposition
and therefore, their ability to learn. We will attempt to
convince our children that wholesome foods tastes good but
it’s awfully difficult for a little one to enjoy eating a
slice of apple and handful of raisins when their neighbor is
downing a Snickers! Please do not give in to the many
pressures in our society that try to defeat good nutrition.
Help us make the time your child spends at Timucuan
Elementary School a healthy and productive.
