Two snacks and a hot lunch are served daily by our full time cook. There is an additional, late snack for toddler and preschool children, which consists of fresh fruit. The cook plans the weekly menus in consultation with staff and nutritional experts, to ensure high nutritional value is received by the children. The menus for the current cycle are posted in the kitchen and the classrooms. It is the intention of the centre to reflect the cultural mosaic of Toronto in our menu planning.
Meals are served family style and teachers sit with the children to model appropriate table manners, and enjoy the meal. Children will be encouraged to try each new food. No child will be forced to eat something he/she does not like. The menus provide sufficient variety that there should always be some food the child likes!
