SNACKS AND MEALS
Children are provided two healthy snacks and one lunch meal per day (full-day children only). I do my best to prepare meals as nutritious and organic as possible, but I also want them to eat. Therefore I usually stay away from exotic foods (tofu, sprouts, kiwi, etc.) and try to stick to more traditional toddler foods (chicken nuggets, pasta, carrots, apples, etc.) that
are organic, no/low sugar, 100% whole grain, and free of artificial
sweeteners, colors, or flavors. I also provide 100% apple juice,
skim, low-fat and whole milk, and filtered water for the
children to drink.
I do not provide a breakfast meal, although the first
snack is breakfast type foods, so please feed your child
before you arrive. Also, due to time constraints and limited
staffing, I can not prepare separate meals for individual children. If your child requires a special diet (i.e. gluten free, vegetarian, non-wheat, -dairy,
-egg, etc.) please provide prepared meals for him or her to eat.
A monthly menu will be emailed to you at the beginning of each month.
NOTE: Lunch is NOT included with the half-day programs.
