Food and Nutrition
Lord’s Lambs provides nutritional meals to all the children in our program. Children three years and older participate in family-style dining, passing food around the table allowing children to serve themselves. Children will be encouraged to take a small serving of each food group and to take a “no thank you” bite. Staff sit at the table with the children to model appropriate table behavior, promote manners, self-discipline, and independence. Grace will be spoken before every meal. Menus will be posted weekly.
Food cannot be brought in from outside the building, unless a child has an allergy or medical intolerance to certain foods. We will serve all food and milk to every child, unless a doctor’s written documentation is provided.
Breakfast will be served between 7:00 and 8:30 am. Lunch and snack schedules are posted in the toddler and preschool classrooms. Infants eat on demand.
Food cannot be brought into the center. If your child is eating breakfast in the car, he/she needs to finish before entering the building.
Gum and candy are not allowed in the center at any time.
