Meals & Nutrition at Tender Years

Tender Years Child Development Centers provide a nutritious breakfast to all children arriving at the center prior to 9 a.m. If your child has dietary restrictions and/or food allergies, you will be asked to state so on the Emergency Contact/Parental Consent form upon registration. Parents have the option to either pack a lunch or purchase a nutritious lunch provided by an outside catering company. A menu is posted below for the breakfast and catered lunches, and can also be obtained from your center’s director.

Parents provide a nutritious afternoon snack on a rotating basis. Monthly afternoon snack menus will be handed out by your child’s teacher indicating when it is your turn to provide afternoon snack.

Families are required to observe the following rules regarding food and beverages:

  • Beverages provided for snacks must be in a sealed, non-breakable container. Positively no glass or open containers will be allowed.
  • Snacks should be nutritious and low in sugar. Families should avoid providing cookies and candy for snacks.
  • Please provide food that children can eat on their own (i.e. finger foods).
  • Peanut butter is not provided at our program due to the significant number of children with peanut allergies. Parents are asked to avoid items containing peanuts or tree nuts due to these allergy concerns. Classrooms may post certain allergy-free zones when a child with a severe food allergy is present in the program.
  • Families are required to label bottles for infants with the child’s name. All bottles are to be placed in the refrigerator by the family when the child arrives. Families are to remove all bottles when the child leaves each day.
  • Food items in lunchboxes should be labeled, and refrigerated in the appropriate area if necessary. Lunches cannot be heated for safety reasons. Please pack ready-to-eat lunches.
