Meals and Snacks

All children are served fresh, hot lunches and two nutritious snacks daily.  Our kitchen employees have successfully obtained certificates in the Safe Food Handling Program through the Public Health Department; they maintain a clean and safe environment and ensure the kitchen meets all Health Department Regulations.  Our Kitchen Supervisor is responsible for the overall operation of the kitchen, including meal planning and preparation, food purchase and storage and meal and snack service. The Child Care and Early Years Act require child care centres to follow the recommendations in Health Canada’s document “Canada’s Food Guide” when preparing our menus. Please note, if a child has food allergies or food restrictions, parents are to provide appropriate food alternatives as necessary.

We are an anaphylactic aware centreDue to severe anaphylactic allergies, it is very important we are aware of the food products/food ingredients being served to the children while they are in attendance.  In order to eliminate the confusion regarding which products are safe we are asking parents not to bring treats into the centre to share with other children.

On the last Friday of every month all the classrooms will be provided with cupcakes or cake to celebrate all the children’s birthdays that are happening that month.  Parents are always welcome and encouraged to join us for our special birthday celebrations.  We understand that a birthday is a special and exciting time for a child.  If your child would like to bring something to share with their friends a non-edible treat (i.e. stickers) that could go home with the children at the end of the day would be welcome.  Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
