Please send a nutritious lunch and a healthy snack each day. Parents/guardians are responsible to pack lunches that they are comfortable with children choosing freely from, self-determining what they want to eat.
Filtered water, milk and one snack will be provided by Mommy’s Daycare for your child each day. Snack foods include fruit, vegetables, yogurt, cheese; for infants we will offer baby food pouches and pureed fruits such as apple sauce. Monthly snack schedules will be posted by the sign-in sheets or on the parent board. Water will be served with all snacks and mealtimes
At Mommy’s Daycare, we want to foster a positive relationship between children and food right from the start. To do so, we use the Division of Responsibility Model (DOR). DOR acknowledges that caregivers and children both have responsibilities around food. Adults are responsible for the ‘when’, ‘what’ and ‘where’. Children are responsible for the ‘how much’ and ‘whether’ they eat.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not send any candies, chocolate bars or pop. Please do not send anything that needs to be cooked; we do not use the stove. We can access a microwave to reheat food; please ensure any foods that must be reheated for lunch are in a microwaveable-safe container.
*We are a nut-free facility - do not send any nuts, foods with nut-products, nut-butters, or foods made in a facility that processes nuts.
