We know that children who are well-nourished are ready to best learn, play and grow. The goal of our healthy CT child care center is to create nutritious childhood eating habits for a lifetime of good health.
Healthy Food Matters.
Studies have shown that organic milk (free from hormones such as Cargeneen, GMOs, and antibiotics) is a great choice for growing bodies. B&E is mindful to serve whole foods instead of processed foods, whole grains, and ‘no sugar added’ choices. B&E works with our Nutrition Consultant, Dr. Jenn Krebs Rapkin, to create and assess our healthy snack menus.
Better, healthier choices…
B&E serves organic milk at all lunch meals, and with daily snacks. Menu items served:
- ORGANIC MILK – free of added hormones, antibiotics, and GMOs
- DAIRY PROTEINS – yogurt, cheese
- FRESH FRUITS – bananas, apple slices
- FRUIT CUPS/APPLESAUCE – in natural juice, no added sugar
- WHOLE GRAINS – cereal, cereal bars, crackers
- Annie’s ORGANIC Cheddar Bunnies – a children’s favorite!
