Healthy Class Party and Birthday Celebration Ideas

Let’s face it kids like parties (parents too!)  There are numerous benefits to having healthy school celebrations.  Research clearly demonstrates that good nutrition is linked to positive behavior and higher academic performance.  Healthy parties at school provide consistent messages about Vine Hill’s commitment to promoting healthy behaviors.  They also promote a healthy school environment in which students receive consistent, reliable health information and ample opportunity to use it.  Finally, healthy class parties can create excitement about nutrition by helping children to try new and healthy snacks.  Here are some suggestions.




  • Light or low-fat popcorn

  • Pretzels or different shapes

  • Low-sugar cereal and milk

  • Whole grain tortilla chips and salsa

  • Whole grain crackers and cheese

  • Bagels and cream cheese

  • Pita chips or pita triangles and hummus

  • Cheese quesadillas

  • Bean and cheese burritos (make your own)

  • Hard boiled eggs (peel your own)

  • Nuts (check for allergies)

  • Dried fruit

  • Friendship trail mix:  All students bring in a contribution to combine and share


Fruits and Vegetables

  • Raw veggies with salads dressing, hummus, guacamole, salsa, or peanut butter (check for allergies)

  • Fresh Fruit, cut up or served on kabobs

  • Friendship fruit or vegetable salad.  All students bring in a contribution to combine and share.

Sweets and Treats

  • Graham crackers (try the cinnamon kind)

  • Fruit juice bars

  • Yogurt tubes (served frozen)

  • Berries with low-fat whipped cream

  • Angel food cake with fresh berries or fruit

  • Yogurt and fruit smoothies

Give it a try without Snacks

  • Parents come during recess or PE and organize a game your child likes (with teacher approval)

  • Teachers have all sorts of ideas about how to make school celebrations healthy.  Feel free to check in with your teacher for some help

A Message From Our Principal

Gold Ribbon.jpgDear Vine Hill Families,


I am so honored to share with you that Vine Hill received a Gold Ribbon Award from the State of California.
