Meals and Snacks
Meals and snacks we provide
Each day we provide three nutritious and well-balanced meals. We provide morning breakfast from 7:30am-9am, lunch at 11:30am/12:00pm and an afternoon snack at 3:30pm/4:00pm. Milk (regular and lactose free) is served with all meals and snacks, and water is offered throughout the day. A dinner-snack is offered as well. The meals and snacks for each week constantly vary in order to ensure the children receive a well-balanced diet. We encourage the children to eat, but also respect their individual decisions.
What is our goal?
It is our goal to offer nutritious meals and snacks to the children in our care, as nutrition is a vital part of a child's health. Children need to eat well-balanced meals in order to meet their daily energy needs and to help them build a strong body and mind. We know that the good food habits a child develops will help them prevent cavities, iron deficiency anemia, and obesity, etc. - all common nutritional problems in young children. We strongly support family-style meals - besides monitoring them during their meals, our teachers eat with their students.
