Research shows nutrient-dense foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables provide children with many essential nutrients needed for optimal growth and health.

How your child eats today will have a striking impact on her health throughout adolescence and adulthood. Consuming nutritious foods helps children grow, develop, do well academically and feel good about themselves

Children are served and encouraged but never forced to try new foods. If your child has any allergies please let me know. We practice manners at childcare. We use thank you, please, you’re welcome and many more! All children join us at the table; learn proper seating and table manners. Children will help set tables and prepare the table and meal when possible. Children will also help clean up afterwards. Menus are  given to parents and posted on the parents board monthly. The children enjoy eating there meals in a family style atmosphere where they learn good eating habits and manners. I provide baby food and infant cereal for infants.
