Snack / Food
At LMMA, we are very conscious of the value of nutritious foods to the good health of the child. Our organic snack program emphasizes non-gmo, dairy and nut free whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables. We source our food from M&M vitamins, our local vendor. We give our full attention to providing “beautiful snack and lunch environments” for the children. Practicing grace, courtesy, independence, and caring for self and others is essential to a Montessori educational experience.
Morning snacks are given five days a week. An additional afternoon snack in the classroom is provided and again in the aftercare program. All cooking projects and food preparation activities in the class should follow LMMA policy of providing organic foods for children.
