NUTRITION

Good nutrition is vital to a child's overall development and well-being. At Crossroads Kids Connection, we offer a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, and proteins daily to promote this.

 

When meal planning, we like to introduce new and different foods and child favorites to provide children with a balance of variety and familiarity. Menus are adapted to include fresh, in-season produce when available. We are blessed with a local farm in Helenville where we get fresh-picked produce. Visit Jelli's Market online and in-person!

In January 2024, we added Build-Your-Own (BYO) meals to the menu! Children can assemble their meals to enhance mealtime with self-help and sensory and motor skills! Fostering independence and creativity, this culinary adventure happens at least once a week. Paired with our weekly lesson plan themes, from healthy breakfast to creative snacks, we're making mealtime a flavorful and enriching experience! Check out the new January Menu to find six fresh BYO meals.

Meal and snack times are planned throughout the day so no child will go more than 3 hours without food. You can review more information here
