Healthy Celebrations

JWP Public Schools are encouraging everyone to embrace the Wellness Policy by addressing the kinds of celebrations we have in the classroom.

School celebrations and events are exciting and important for students and staff. Birthday parties and holiday celebrations provide a unique opportunity to help make healthy eating fun and for children to practice wise food choices.

As a school, we are encouraging healthy celebration treats.

When foods are offered at classroom parties, be sure that they meet the
Wellness Policy’s nutrition standards. The standards are:
• Not more than 30% of the total calories of the food item, excluding nuts or
seeds, is from fat.
• Not more than 10% of the total calories of the food item, excluding reduced fat
cheeses, eggs and nut butters, is from saturated fat.
• Not more than 35% of the total weight of the food item, excluding fruits or
vegetables, is composed of sugar.

See below for an order form of what Healthy treats our food service could make for your next classroom celebration.

On your child’s birthday, we will celebrate them in nonfood ways, like having them wear a special hat, sash, or letting them lead class activities, playing games and/or having a 15 minute dance party.

Please help us promote a healthy school environment and healthy kids!
