Do you provide meals?
In settings where the meals are offered to all the children, some parents can find that their child is refusing to eat the meal completely. This is not only stressful for the parents but the child care staff as well. This is why we find that the best option is for parents to provide a healthy nutritious lunch for their child. In Addition, a morning and afternoon snack should be provided.
What meals should we bring?
Morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack:
- Morning Snack: should include portions of fluid milk, grains, and fruits or vegetables.
- Lunch: should include portions of fluid milk, meat or meat alternatives, grains, fruits and vegetables.
- Afternoon snack: should include portions of at least two of the following: fluid milk, meat or meat alternatives, grains, fruits and vegetables.
- Avoid choking foods such as uncut grapes, raisins, popcorn, raw carrots, uncut tomatoes
