Meals and Nutrition Policy

GEDC0005 Snack time

Children are provided breakfast (8:30 A.M.), lunch (begins at 11:00 and is served at 15 minute intervals), and afternoon snacks (3:00 P.M. and 4:30 P.M.). Parents of children arriving at preschool after breakfast will need to call the preschool for their child to be included in the 9:00 A.M. lunch count. Nutritious meals are served which meet the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program Guidelines. Menus are posted in each classroom and copies sent home monthly. Meals are served family style. Accommodations for children with special dietary needs or food allergies are made on an individual basis and require a written request and instructions. Milk allergies must be documented with a doctor’s note.

Snacks may be provided by parents on special occasions such as a child’s birthday; however, they must meet minimum nutritional standards. Food items must be purchased rather than homemade. Please schedule with your child’s teacher when bringing food items to school.
