Information For Families

Families managing children’s allergies are required to communicate directly to their teachers and site director so that GBD can understand how to partner with parents to ensure children’s safety and health.

Parents that elect to bring their child’s lunch or snack must abide by the following:

  • Provide an insulated container labeled with the child’s first and last name. Please include a cold pack or thermos as necessary to maintain safe food temperatures.
  • GBD will not heat to serve meals brought from home (with the exception of infant bottles in the first year of life).
  • Foods from home may not contain nuts or chocolate, may not be identified choking hazards (e.g., grapes, hotdogs), and must be low or no sugar in order to be offered to the child in the classroom.
