FOOD PROGRAM

Our food menu at Heather's is developed and approved by a nutritionist.  Parents are able to view the menu each day on our parent bulletin board and copies of our weekly menu is available at the parent computer sign in station.


Our meals and snacks are all nutritionally planned. We at Heather’s strive each day to serve our children heart healthy food. Our cook, Mr. Sam provides each child with a meal and two snacks each day. However, if children arrive early in the morning without breakfast and a parent requests, we will provide that child with milk and cereal. Mr. Sam has found a wonderful positive way to get children to try their vegetables. There is an outside vegetable garden. Mr. Sam educates the children about the garden and how their vegetable are growing into food. The children sometimes pick their own vegetables out of our garden. Mr. Sam cooks them for the children. They usually eat them with joy. Mr. Sam always makes special treats for the children to enjoy every week. Sometimes he even makes pancakes in the form of each child’s initials.


Special diets: We strive to provide special food or dietary arrangements (e.g. food allergies).
