Daycare Menus

0

I have had so many people come to me panicking about daycare menus, what they should and shouldn't do, what needs to be included to cover the requirements of the dreaded food pyramid and generally in an awful tizzy about something that simply requires a little common sense.  Healthy,easy to prepare, well rounded meals are the key.  There are so many one pot dishes that are ideal for daycare menus – and your own family.  Keep it simple and stop thinking that you need to transform yourself into Jamie Oliver.

Think casseroles and stews, steamed vegetables, fish, pasta and lots of fresh fruits. Cheese, crackers, rice cakes, raisins, carrot sticks and yogurts make great snacks.  Personally, I don't provide food at my day care so parents send in all snacks plus a meal which we reheat and serve to the kids.  Another option to consider is ordering pre-prepared, frozen meals and heating on the premises.  Some companies specialize in providing this service to day cares and deliver to your freezer making your daycare menus situation much easier on you.
