Albuquerque Daycare Meals – Hot & Nutritious
Part of keeping your child healthy is providing him or her with nutritious meals. At Blue Bird Day Care & Learning Center, we make sure your child is fed good, nutritious meals every day.
High Quality Food
As part of the federal Child & Adult Care Food Program, we are able to provide the highest quality of meats, fruits and vegetables at no additional cost to you. All of our meals are prepared on-site, from scratch—and are delicious!
Great Tasting Food
We know that children desire food that tastes good. Our tried and tested menus strive always to accomplish both healthy and tasty meals that kids love! All of our food is prepared in our state-of-the-art kitchen with a culinary flair that makes kids look forward to meal times at Blue Bird Day Care & Learning Center.
We use meal and snack time to help your child learn table manners and to share with one another. We do this by serving all food family-style. That means, there are child-sized serving bowls for children to pass around the table as they learn to take their own appropriate portion size. Staff members help younger children with this process while older children are encouraged to practice serving their own food.
Healthy Snacks for Preschool
Healthy snacks for children in our Albuquerque preschool program are important to help them sustain energy throughout the day. We incorporate a variety of healthy snacks into our child day care menu to allow your child the opportunity to develop a love for nutritional foods.
Special Diets and Food Allergies
We are aware that not all children are able to eat certain foods. Whether your child has special diet requirements for religious or personal reasons, we will accommodate the specific diet you have for your child. Additionally, we will create special meals for children with food allergies.
A monthly child day care menu is always posted at the Albuquerque day care center & Pre-K so you know exactly what your child will be eating throughout the month. Healthy snacks for preschool and all ages are daily incorporated into our meal planning. We can also provide suggestions for healthy cooking at home if you are interested.
