School Snacks & Labour Day BBQ
Going Back to School: What To Snack On
Students all across Ontario will be heading back to school in the upcoming weeks ahead.
The government’s plan to reopen schools was approved by public health officials. This is a good thing according to pediatric specialists, who say that while the virus is dangerous, not going to school is dangerous, too – for education purposes as well as for children’s mental health.
Here is a great piece of advice from UNICEF:
“UNICEF is urging schools – whether open or helping students through remote learning – to provide students with holistic support. Schools should provide children with vital information on handwashing and other measures to protect themselves and their families; facilitate mental health support; and help to prevent stigma and discrimination by encouraging students to be kind to each other and avoid stereotypes when talking about the virus.”
