Each day children in the half day classroom will have breakfast or a hot lunch and in the full day classroom will have both breakfast and hot lunch along with a snack. Because meals are a special time for the children and adults, classroom meals are served family style. The children are allowed to help with activities such as setting the table, serving the food to others or self, and/or clean up.
Food is never used as a punishment or reward.
The children are encouraged but never forced to taste any food.
Special meal substitutions will only be provided for children with documented food allergies. Special requests because of cultural or religious beliefs cannot be honored. A Special Meal Modification Request Form (SMMRF) will be provided by the Preschool Office at registration and must be completed and signed by the physician before enrollment.
