Meals / Nutrition
All Infants, Toddlers, Preschool, and school-age children will receive center provided, well balanced, and nutritious Breakfast, Lunch, and Afternoon snack. All meals will be prepared onsite and the preparation, servings, and nutritional needs will meet the USDA’s CACFP requirements.
Cooking or food related activities or discussion will be regularly implemented into the preschool classrooms. These activities will be educational and/ or experimental; we assure you that allergy information from children’s enrollment documents will be kept in mind when implementing these activities.
Should you want to bring treats to celebrate your child’s birthday you are welcome to do so. Please keep in mind the number or children in your child’s classroom and everything must be in the original store bought sealed package. Please see office personnel with any questions.
For infant meals, our center will provide all food including formula. Should you chose to use the formula we offer, we will not mix the formula, but will give you the powder to mix at home and bring bottles already mixed and ready to use. Please ensure you provide enough bottles for your infant to have while in our care. We will also give you a list of Jarred foods offered so you may make the choice of what your infant may have or not have. Should you wish to provide solids or formula you are welcome to do so as well. Please ensure that all infant formula and breast milk bottles or food containers brought from home are properly labeled and dated with the appropriate labels provided.
*Water is available to all children at all times of day including meals. Children 12-24 Months are served Whole Milk, 24 Months and older receive 1% Milk. Age appropriate substitutions made where necessary.
