Food & Nutrition Program

​Food and Nutrition Program

Our centers participate and comply with the USDA sponsored Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). All breakfasts, snacks, lunches, and beverages are provided free of cost to families. Meals are planned to meet the children's nutritional needs and are served in a family style setting.  All food is prepared on-site in our kitchens with fresh quality ingredients by our dedicated kitchen staff.  Outside food and drinks are not permitted in the classrooms or outside play areas.

Menus:
  •  Current menus and any changes are posted on center's main bulletin board, in the classroom, and on our website

Food Allergies:

  • Food allergies and restrictions must be documented with a medical statement
  • Restricted foods will be substituted based on your doctor's recommendation and the CACFP guidelines
  • Medical statement forms may be obtained in the center's office

Infant and Toddler:

  • Infants and toddlers feeding patterns and menus are addressed individually in partnership with the family
  • Staff will provide parents with the information and procedures

 

The CACFP program mandates that we inform you of the following :
