Snack and Lunch Protocol

Mealtime Guidelines

We provide a safe, relaxing and comfortable eating environment for the children.

A comfortable environment helps to ensure that the children are able to learn and develop healthy lifelong eating behaviors and habits that are essential to each child's developmental growth. Through planned activities and guided discussion, teachers help children understand the "food and body connection." Children have the opportunity to try new foods, refuse foods, and to choose nutritious foods that support healthy development. The Center offers a morning and afternoon snack served with milk. Age-appropriate snacks are prepared by knowledgeable and trained kitchen staff. Infant parents provide food and drink for their child; as appropriate Center snacks are introduced. Toddler and Preschool children bring their lunch to school.
