NUTRITION

The Child Development Center participates in the California Adult and Child Care Food Program (CACFP) and is able to offer breakfast, lunch, and snack to all children enrolled in our program.

A 6-week cycle menu has been developed to meet the nutritional needs of our children and follows the specific meal pattern requirements set by the Department of Nutrition Services. We offer a variety of child friendly foods, rich in whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables. It is our goal to offer children food they are familiar with and expose them to foods from other cultures. Our meals are served family style, meaning children are encouraged to serve themselves and clean up after themselves.

If your child has allergies to a specific food, or cannot eat a specific food due to a religious conviction or dietary restriction, we are able to make reasonable accommodations to meet the needs of the child.
