At OFLC we pride ourselves on fostering good eating habits in children at an early age. Good eating habits last a lifetime, which is why we insist on all children getting fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and a protein at every meal. Children are of course never forced to eat anything, but we continually expose them to healthy options and encourage them to eat a balanced meal. We strive for fresh organic ingredients whenever possible.
Lunch is not the only food we serve, as the kids also get two snacks a day-both morning and afternoon. And some of our centers also serve breakfast. Ask your teacher/director for more info on morning routines. We also encourage you to bring in anything you wish for your child if you have a picky eater or just have some specific preferences. We must only insist that whatever you send in is completely nut free.
Each day, you will get a daily sheet that describes your child’s day, and part of that sheet discusses a food log. So you will know how your child has eaten that day.
