We make and prepare all of our snacks and meals in a commercial kitchen on-site. We incorporate fresh fruits, vegetables, and proteins into their meals every day while maintaining NC DHHS (North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services), NCDCDEE (North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education), and CACFP (Child and Adult Care Food Program) Nutritional Standards.
Servings and Nutrition for Children
All snacks and meals are included in your child’s tuition. A vegetarian option is available for every snack or meal every day. There are no additional costs or charges associated with your child’s snacks or meals. We serve milk and water with every meal and snack. We also provide milk substitutes on a case-by-case basis to accommodate dietary restrictions and needs. Our menu is specially designed to offer a wide variety of foods. Serving sizes are based on the child’s age and, while we always encourage the children to eat as much as they comfortably can, we never force them to eat.
We, at Snyder Preschool and Learning Center, take allergies very seriously. We accommodate all food allergies at no additional cost. Upon enrollment, the teachers, administrative personnel, and food preparation staff receive written notification of the allergy. This notification is kept on hand to be reviewed and referenced during preparation and distribution of every meal or snack.
