Meals at Nursery

  • Balanced Bites by building blocks

    Nutritious meals and snacks are essential for young children’s optimal growth and development. The energy provided by healthy foods ensures that children will be ready to fully participate in the day’s learning opportunities.

    Balanced Bites is our healthy meals program that provides nutritious meals and snacks to infants and children as a regular part of their day.

    During meals children learn about balanced meals, they learn to develop their sense of taste, complementing what they learn at home, to make good food choices without being influenced by trends, media and marketing; and to they learn the relationship between eating habits and health.

    How to make nutritious choices, discover a wide variety of different foods and develop healthy eating habits.

  • Little Chef

    In our weekly enrichment activity, our cooking class goes beyond the rolling pins and toppings. Children talk about taste, flavor and texture. They hear words such as portions, mix, stew and pour. They experience the richness of all cultures and learn about where food comes from, how they have received it and explore the science behind food preparation.
