WE'VE UPPED OUR
Recently, we have made some changes to our menus that we are excited about. Formerly, we ate what tasted good but today we eat what is good! We have challenged ourselves and upped our nutrition standards because we get it now, We are what we eat! There are times when we are out on educational field trips where we will eat in a fast-food restaurant but we have challenged ourselves to do an 80/20 rule.
This means all of our food is 80% free of artificial preservatives, colors, flavors, and sweeteners. We have worked hard to try and eliminate unhealthy trans fats and high-fructose corn syrup.
Our balanced menu is low sodium, low sugar, low-fat, nutrient-dense and full of whole grains, organic or locally grown fruits and vegetables so we can be our healthiest self!
Children will eat lunch in their small groups after saying grace to give thanks. A pleasant and teachable conversation is encouraged to help make this a relaxed and enjoyable learning time.
Children are encouraged to sample the variety of foods, adhere to the "2 bites rule" but no child is "forced" to eat. The children help clean up their tables after each meal. Picnic lunches provide an occasional break in routine.
Please look over our menus weekly and alert us of any foods your child(ren) may be allergic to. GO HERE to see our Nutrition, Wellness, and Physical Activity Guidelines. GO HERE to see our Nutrition Standards. GO HERE to see our menu.
