It's Meal Time! Our children enjoy healthy and nutritious meals and snacks.
Proper nutrition plays a crucial role in the health and development of children. Nutritious foods are prepared and offered throughout the day to ensure children are getting the nourishment and energy they need to learn, grow, and be healthy.
Meal Time at the Center!
Scheduled mealtimes provide continuity and assurance for children with some flexibility for special activities, the weather and children’s individual needs. it also provides the children with the opportunity to:
- An opportunity to interact while eating (socializing)
- Enjoy healthy meals and snacks
- Select foods they like to eat (from the healthy choices offered), self-serve, and how much
- Learn appropriate table manners
After each child is finish eating we encourage he/she to stay at the table and talk while others are finishing their meal.
