Food is a participatory, social, and learning experience.
It is important to encourage great eating habits in young children. We find that meal times are the perfect times to grow, learn, bond, examine and try new things. We always offer a variety of healthy and interesting food choices, using fresh, local and organic whenever possible.
Snack and lunch are provided for students. Snack generally consists of a combination of fresh and organic fruits and vegetables and whole grains (like crackers or rice cakes). Lunch includes a main protein/ carbohydrate entrée as well as two fruit and vegetable choices. While at both times, children are encouraged to try new things, each child’s own choices are respected. Both snack and lunch are served family style and table manners as well as conversation and fun are encouraged during eating times.
Snack time is also used for math/literacy instruction as well as story telling, read aloud, rhymes, games and sharing.
Special diets can be accommodated.
Parents who prefer to pack their child’s snack/lunch are welcome to.
