Dear Parents,

At the YMCA we believe in providing our kids with the tools they need to make their own healthy choices. Our afterschool programs provide a healthy snack every day consisting of a fruit and/or vegetable with a second component of whole grains, low-fat dairy, or lean proteins. We ask that when packing your child’s snack, please keep our standards in mind.

We encourage that you pack: 

  • Fresh, canned (in 100% fruit juice or water) or dried fruits and vegetables
  • Whole grains such as whole wheat crackers, whole wheat bread, whole wheat cereal, unbuttered popcorn
  • Lean proteins such as sunbutter, hard boiled eggs, sunflower or pumpkin seeds, bean salsa or salad
  • Refrigerated low-fat dairy such as low-fat milk, yogurt, cheese sticks, cottage cheese, etc.

Please keep at home:

  • Juice, Sports Drinks, Sodas
  • Snacks containing more than 8 grams of sugar per serving (cookies, sugary granola bars or crackers)
  • Foods high in fat such as chips, fried proteins, etc.
  • Refined grains/processed snacks

Thank you for your cooperation as we work towards educating your children about healthy habits that generate healthy futures.

Be Well,
Maggie Lynch RDN LDN
Director of Nutrition Services
