Meals and Snacks

Early Learning Childcare

All children are offered nutritious snacks both in the morning and in the afternoon which are prepared on-site. There will be a monthly snack menu on the parent’s board for your information. Lunch is provided by the parents or guardians. Parents may provide their child with a variety of nutritious fruits, vegetables, bread etc., in a lunch bag. It is our belief that children can eat on demand, so they can get their lunch bag, sit down by the lunch table and eat at any time of the day.

If your child has allergies and requires a modified diet, we must be notified of this in writing. We will need to have a physician's written instructions describing any foods the child is not permitted to eat. An appropriate substitution will be made, if possible.

We never force a child to finish what is on his/her plate, but we do encourage each child to try one or two bites of everything. All eating patterns will be communicated to the parents.
