At Milwaukee Montessori School, we recognize that students are with us for the majority of their waking hours, and that overall success can be measured in great part by good health and effective daily habits. For this reason, we have a very strict food policy: We do not permit high-fat, high-sugar, and/or high-salt foods in school. These include, but are not limited to:
- Chips (Potato or Corn) or Cheetos of any kind, even if they say they are healthy or are baked
- Soda or coffee drinks
- Cupcakes, snack cakes, donuts, muffins, or pies
- Candy or candy bars
- Granola bars with chocolate chips, frosting, or glaze
- Cookies of any kind
- Club crackers filled with cheese or peanut butter
- Fruit in sugar syrup
Bag lunches from home must follow the policy. Students who bring prohibited food items will be asked to repack them and take them home. If your child would like to pack his or her own lunch, we suggest foods from each food group such as breads, dairy, fruit, vegetables, and protein.
Each day, a healthy snack is available to students in their classrooms. Food from home may not be substituted for the school-provided snack.
School Lunch Options
Milwaukee Montessori School offers a healthy hot-lunch program with three options for enrollment:
- Full school year
- Fall or Spring semesters
We also offer a milk-only program for those who bring their own lunch and Junior High students may opt for a seed-butter sandwich and salad bar.
