Meals and Snack

We provide a morning snack, lunch, and an afternoon snack for all children. We also provide breakfast for children enrolled in our “before” school care program and a late afternoon snack for children enrolled in our “after” school care program. We believe a healthy body is a necessary component to a child’s learning. We therefore, provide high quality, warm and nutritious meals that include all five food groups, organic fruits and vegetables and exceed USDA guidelines. Menus of all served meals and snacks are available to take home, and the current menu is posted each week. We also offer a vegetarian meal options.

If, for medical or religious reasons, your child should require a special diet or has a food allergy, please discuss this with the Directors and indicate the special need in your enrollment information. We keep an Allergy/Dietary Restrictions chart in each classroom and in the kitchen listing the child’s name and the prohibited food; this list is updated monthly.  We make every effort to accommodate restricted diets.  If you child has a food allergy, you will need to complete a Childcare Emergency Plan for Allergic Reactions form that must also be signed by your child’s doctor. Please obtain this form from the Director or Office Administrator.

Cedar Crest Academy provides full meals and snacks. We request that you do not bring food from home unless prior arrangements have been made.
