Meal Menus

At BBCDC, health and nutrition are just as important as your child’s learning.  We provide hot nutritious breakfast, lunch, and supper as well as afternoon and evening snacks.  BBCDC believes in feeding the body as well as the mind.  

Our menu, planned by a registered dietitian, provides wholesome meals and satisfying snacks that meet federal and state requirements and guidelines established by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). We also work with food manufacturers to create appropriate portion sizes and nutritional ingredients for children.

Servings and Nutrition for Children at BBCDC Centers

  • Meals and snacks include a variety of food groups including meat and meat alternatives, bread and grains, fruits, vegetables and fluid milk.

  • Meals and snacks include carbohydrates, proteins and fat to give children energy, while maintaining total calories within recommended ranges specific to a child’s age group and level of activity.

  • Meals and snacks have limited added sugar and sodium and increased dietary fiber.

 

Allergens & Adaptations

If your child has a special nutritional need or requires an adaptation to our menu, we will work with your family to create a plan that adequately meets your child’s needs.

Please alert your local day care center if your child has a known allergy or nutrition need.  Here is an example of what our menus offer:
