Health and nutrition are important to us!
Children need to have healthy snacks and lunch in order for them to grow and learn! Their little bodies and brains need nutritional food and drink that give them the energy that they need. We provide a morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack that meet the guidelines set by the Kansas State Department of Health and Environment.
The children are given a snack that includes items from two food groups for each snack. All juice is 100% juice, and milk is 2%.
Our lunches are catered from a licensed caterer. The meals are balanced nutritional meals that provide the children with the experience to sample different types of food. Children are given a ‘yes please’ or a ‘no thank you’ helping of each item, so that they have the opportunity to try everything. Menus are always posted in the school lobby.
Manners are always essential, even during meal time, and handwashing is a must! Children are encouraged to chew with their mouths closed, use their eating utensils, drink out of real cups, keep their elbows off of the table, and to clean up after themselves. Mealtime is a fun socialization time, however the learning does not stop!
