Approved Snack List

Our preschoolers sometimes get hungry at the end of their day. In the past, we were able to provide snacks; however, we are no longer able to do so. If you would like to contribute to provide our daily snack choices, we would gladly appreciate your support. 

Below is a list of snacks for preschoolers that the state of Indiana has approved. Snacks must be prepackaged and unopened when they are brought into the classroom. If there is an item you would like to bring that is not on the list, please contact Health Coordinator Sarah McVicker, 765-664-0589, before bringing to class to make sure we are able to offer it to our children.

  • All fresh fruits and vegetables (ranch dip can be used for dipping veggies — you can bring a new unopened bottle or individual pre-packaged dip cups)
  • Chips and salsa
  • Animal crackers (no icing)
  • Goldfish crackers (original, cheese, colors, or pretzel)
  • Cheese and crackers (unopened packages of block cheese or unopened packages of pre-cut cubes or squares
  • String cheese
  • Granola bars
  • Breakfast bars
  • Pretzels
  • Mini muffins
  • Graham crackers (plain, honey, or cinnamon)
  • Chex Mix (original, unopened in original packaging)

The state requires us to have milk and Vitamin C offered daily to our children. Please do not bring in Capri Sun or juice boxes for the class. Many of them are not allowed by the state. In many cases, half a piece of fruit is an acceptable serving. For example, half a banana per child may be given as a snack.
