January's Classroom Snack

For this month's shareable classroom snack, Henry chose sesame sticks and coconut strips. He was excited to serve these snacks to his classmates, as part of their Montessori grace and courtesy routine.

One of his classmates is vegan and this has been a hot topic of conversation among the kids in his classroom. We talked about what it means to be "vegan" and how that might limit her food choices. Henry was concerned that his snack should be vegan so that everyone in his class could share. He decided not to bring jerky or honey pretzels since his classmate might not be able to eat those foods. I was heartened to hear his desire to be inclusive.

What is your child's favorite inclusive classroom snack?
