Daily Meals 

Nutrition is related to healthy growth, alertness, intellect and physical strength.  All centers will provide a nutritious breakfast and afternoon snack for the children which will represent the basic food groups in a variety of foods. The centers will also provide milk with breakfast and milk with lunch daily.  Breakfast and snack menus vary by center and will be posted on the Parent Information Board.

Parents are responsible for providing a nutritious lunch for their children or ordering the center’s hot lunch for each day their child attends school.  We encourage parents to provide a healthy, nutritious lunch that consists of fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, meats or pastas. We strongly discourage lunches high in salt content and fattening foods.
