Northport Nursery School Safe Snacks

We are sensitive to students with food allergies and work diligently to accommodate children with gluten, peanut/tree nut, soy and other allergies. A system of checks and balances ensures that the food offered to our students has been approved by parents and staff. We occasionally cook and bake as part of our curriculum; all food items in our kitchen are free of common allergens.

  • Fruits (must be cut up in the Northport Nursery School kitchen; please do not purchase precut/prepackaged fruit or prepare at home)
  • Vegetables (must be cut up in the Northport Nursery School kitchen; please do not purchase precut/prepackaged vegetables or prepare at home; no carrots, as they are a choking hazard)
