WELCOME!

Sample of our Weekly Menu

This menu is only a sample. This is NOT served every week.  I pride myself on home cooked meals and good nutrition. My Menu is regulated by the Federal Food Program. I often go above and beyond what is required. I serve fresh fruits and vegetables as well as many whole foods to the children whenever possible.

 

 I also include the children in meal planning activities and including food preparation as well as simple tasks such as passing out spoons, forks, napkins, drinks & snacks. If we are introducing a new food I will let the children explore the food first by setting aside a different time other than meal time and then giving them a sample to explore it on their own by using their 5 senses:  looking, touching, smelling, tasting, and listening to each other describe the new food.
