Healthy Eating

Our goal is to serve healthy food that provides children with the nutrients they need, not empty cheap calories.  Our menu includes fresh fruit, vegetables, and proteins every day.  Many of our meals and snacks are homemade to avoid preservatives and added sweeteners in the children’s diet.   We serve a light breakfast at 7am, a mid morning snack at 9am (for our younger children), lunch at 11am, and an afternoon snack at 3pm.  Our lunch always includes a fruit, vegetable, protein, and milk.  We are sensitive to children with food allergies and work alongside parents to ensure a safe mealtime environment.
