We are the same, and offer “food parking” on the counter by the door when
We still find some sneaking food in, but we have many students complying. Yay
for carpet squares!

The policy here for all classrooms, including the library, is only plain water.
Most students respect the rules, but that doesn't mean we don't find wrappers
and remnants, spill stains on the carpet and gum under the tables. (There are
also paper scraps, abandoned water bottles, and messy chairs to deal with.) I
don't think we would necessarily object to snacks or bottled drinks if the
students were better about cleaning up after themselves. I think that's why we
ended up with replaceable brown carpet squares as our flooring choice!
