I allow bottled water and other beverages as long as they are spill proof type containers. I also allow some snacks as long as the students pick up and throw things away. For the most part there  isn't a problem.

I also have a small group of kids that have their lunches in my backroom. Again, they are responsible for returning trays and garbage to the cafe.

Those that abuse the privilege, lose it and don't get it back
