Meals and Snacks

Previous | Parent Handbook Index | Next

Good nutrition is essential for the healthy growth and development of children. This is an important part of our Program.

All menus are prepared according to the Canada Food Guide, with 2 snacks and a mid-day lunch. 

The food is prepared on-site by a staff member certified in Safe Food Handling. 

 Children are encouraged to try everything that is served at each meal and may have an additional serving if they wish, up to the recommended serving sizes for each age group. If the children do not want to try lunch, the staff will respect their wishes.

Mealtime is made as pleasant an experience as possible for the children. The pace is leisurely and the children can take their time to enjoy their food.

Special arrangements for religious or medical reasons can be discussed with the Director.

Parents should inform the Director/Supervisor of any permanent or temporary food allergies or restrictions.

With the exception of Holidays, ‘junk’ food will not be served. Due to food allergies, some of which are life-threatening, we do not permit outside food into the Centre: please do not bring in/send in food with your child.
