Meals & Nutrition
We take the task of nourishing children’s minds and bodies very seriously and ensure that their diet at the daycare is healthy and well balanced.
Our chefs, together with the administration, closely oversee all aspects of our nutrition program. They select only the best items from suppliers in planning our seasonal menu. A variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grain products, lean meats and quality dairy products are offered daily. Our home-style recipes are all prepared from scratch, virtually eliminating the need for processed food. Our menu is consequently free from trans fats, high-fructose corn syrup/sugar and commercially-made taste enhancers, enabling us to provide more natural foods. Real food makes for healthy kids!
Our kitchen is fully equipped with commercial grade equipment. Lunches and snacks are served at the required temperature in our delightful coloured child-sized dishes that match our Bistro. Presentation goes a long way! We have also been certified by MAPAQ (Ministère de l’Agriculture, Pêcherie et Alimentation Québec) and closely adhere to their practices.
Consistent with our ability to provide personal care, we are more than willing to work with families on an individual basis when it comes to specific dietary needs. Taken into consideration are allergies, food restrictions, life-style choices (vegetarian) and religious choices (kosher style). The presence of nuts/peanuts in the day-care is strictly prohibited in order to maximize the safety of children with these allergies.
The Learning Tree prides itself on our unique ability to cater to our families in a personal and individual fashion. Our nutrition program is another way which allows us to provide children with the nutrients they need to grow and develop properly.
