MEALS PREPARATION & SCHEDULE

We maintain a very full and enriching schedule on a daily basis. We are also conscious about best practices in serving meals for our children as they tend to function better if they eat smaller portions more frequently. For this reason we serve 5 smaller meals per day.
Our healthy meals include daily organic choices. Every week the menu is consistent.
We do not serve any pasta or derivate (pizza, mac & cheese, spaghetti, etc.) as I consider them “fast food” and highly processed meals that tend to be a less healthy alternative. I choose not to serve them.
Our infants (6 to 12 months) eat only the foods parents already tested for allergies at home. We cook all the infants’ meals ourselves.
To all children we offer their own sippy cup of water several times per day. We do not serve juices or sodas.
To children with food allergies we offer meals prearranged upon request.
