Looking for opinions.
We are thinking of transitioning to be a snack free school because honestly my teachers are spending over an hour each week checking snacks, washing hands and following other accommodations specifically around snack time to keep my students with severe food allergies safe.
Personally, I am all for it. I never had snack time growing up so it was strange to me right from the start that we have it. And there is SO MUCH waste in the cafeteria from kids not eating their lunches. Also the snacks sent are usually fast acting carbs (candy, chips, etc) so I feel like any argument regarding it being needed to "get them through the day" isn't really true.
BUT there is no real data regarding snacks, so I am just reaching out to get some opinions and data if you are willing to share, please take my survey!
