Snacks and Lunches

It is very important that staff members sit down to eat with the children. Please plan your lunch and snack times so that at least one staff member is always sitting with the children.

Please be sure that you know about any food allergies of children in your program. The Nutrition Coordinator will need a list of these before the Center opens. Keep an eye out for possible reactions to new foods, especially among younger children.

Children are not allowed to share food at lunch time due to food allergies and family food preferences. Children are not told what to eat at lunch (ie. You can’t say eat your sandwich first) but are encouraged to make good, healthy choices and eat a balanced meal.
