MEAL POLICY

 

Examples of a typical lunch include homemade soup,  meat and veggie based stews, homemade mac'n'cheese etc. along with fruits, vegetables and milk. All children eat together which encourages even picky eaters to try new foods. Children learn good manners and cleaning up after themselves. 

 

Spring plans include a garden where kids can further learn healthy eating habits and also to promote physical and intellectual exercise, cooperation and teamwork. It teaches kids not just about growing tomatoes but the patience of seeing a plant grow from seed. A garden also conveys the fact that seedlings need proper care if they’re going to become strong plants. Not a bad message to instill in kids’ minds!

A growing body of research suggests that physical fitness and nutrition are linked to cognition. There is a strong correlation between wellness, physical activity and students’ ability to learn. For this reason, Tiny Miracles is proud to be a health oriented center. A typical day includes organic breakfast, lunch and two snacks. Fresh, organic juice and smoothies made in house are offered on a regular basis. Breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m but if for some reason, your child has not eaten breakfast and arrives after 8:30 a.m., please advise us so that arrangements can be made for your child. All snacks consist of fresh fruits or vegetables and at least one other nutritious food group such as pasture raised, organic, boiled eggs, organic fruit bars etc. We offer a morning snack at 10:00 a.m., lunch at noon and two afternoon snacks after nap. Milk, water or juice is offered with each snack and throughout the day.
