Meal Times

We participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) through the Department of Education and meet USDA nutritional guidelines. Everyone washes their hands before and after meals, the tables are also disinfected before and after meals. A list of food allergies is posted in the kitchen, in classrooms, and included in each child's file. Alternate foods will be provided for children with allergies. Infants are fed on an individual basis decided by the family and provider, Kirkland's Infant Formula with Iron and Gerber is provided.
