Healthy Children, Healthy Choices

Healthy living | Nutritious eating | Physical fitness

The goal is to help children develop healthy habits for a healthy future.

Healthy Eating

It starts with healthy snacks—no juice or fried foods. We’re proud to serve:

  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Foods with whole grains and plenty of vitamins
  • Foods free of artificial dyes
  • Low- or nonfat, rbST-free milk (whole milk for age 2 and under)

Food selections are approved by a registered dietician nutritionist. All servings comply with USDA portion size and nutrition requirements.

We’re committed to each child’s dietary needs, so we’re diligent about allergy restrictions and religious beliefs. Please confer with your director should you need a specific food plan.

Physical Fitness

Keeping children active is an important part of the daily routine. We’re all about movement. We want children to take care of their growing bodies and develop their motor skills.

  • 60 minutes of outdoor physical activity for toddlers and 2-year-olds.
  • 120 minutes of daily activity (at least 60 minutes outdoors) for children older than 3.

Nutritional Education

In our early childhood education classrooms, teachers integrate health concepts into daily lessons. For example, these experiences may include:

  • Sharing books that present a positive view of healthy eating and physical activity
  • Teaching health lessons, in subjects such as “energy balance,” or how much food/calories eaten vs. what is used up by the body each day
  • Using models or toys of fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods for pretend play
