All our food is freshly prepared on site by our qualified chefs.
We use fresh fruit and vegetables daily and our balanced menus provide plenty of variety. Nutritious meals are rotated on a four-weekly basis, encouraging children to develop healthy eating habits for life. We provide a low fat, low sugar diet and avoid harmful colorings and flavorings. We also cater for dietary needs of individual children.
Our comprehensive Grow Fit program helps pave the way for a lifetime of healthy habits by encouraging balanced nutrition and physical activity in early childhood. Through Grow Fit, children are on their way to reaching their full potential and avoiding chronic diseases later in life.
Our program includes the following goals:
Physical activity: 1-2 hours every day, including outside play when possible.
Limited screen time: At learning center, no more than 30 minutes weekly. At home, a maximum of 1-2 hours/day of quality screen time. None for kids ages two or younger.
Food: Fruits or vegetables during at least two eating occasions per day. Meals served family style. Avoid fried foods.
Beverages: Water, whenever. No sugar-sweetened drinks. For ages two+: low- or non-fat milk. 4-6 ounces (max.) of 100% juice a day.
Infant feeding: We support parents’ decisions. Breastfeeding moms can provide milk and are welcome to breastfeed during learning center time.
In the U.S., health risks tied to poor food choices and physical inactivity have increased significantly. Studies show that one in five children is overweight or obese by age six. We provide a variety of healthy choices during meals and snacks and encourage children to try new foods. You’re welcome to sample them. Just ask your learning center director.
