SCES is a LiveWell Greenville School
Parents are finding creative ways help Sara Collins "Live Well!"
Did you know that Sara Collins Elementary is one of only 16 schools in all of Greenville county that have received the LiveWell Greenville Healthy School designation? That means that we are taking steps to create a school environment that promotes healthy eating and active living.
Parents are finding creative ways to support this environment by choosing to send healthy treats for birthdays and for test day snacks. Some delicious, healthy options we have seen lately include:
Fruit and yogurt parfaits
Healthy granola bars
Muffins or breads, such as banana, pumpkin, zucchini, etc.
Apple slices with honey or caramel
Trail mix (made with dried fruits, pretzels, mini chocolate chips, etc.)
Dried fruit like raisins, apricots, prunes
100% fruit roll ups
Squeezable yogurt or apple sauce
THANK YOU to all the parents supporting Sara Collins' efforts to be a LiveWell School!
