We’ve heard horror stories in the past about kids in daycare being fed junk. Why this happens is obvious. Firstly, junk food is easier to feed kids – everybody knows that kids will eat french fries over greens and that chicken nuggets rule. Secondly it’s cheaper, and there’s nothing like being able to cut those costs!
To be fair, not all day cares do this, and we like to think ourselves as one of the few that try to provide the best in terms of nutrition. Unless food is provided by parents (which is always an option) our kids will eat the same quality food that we buy for ourselves.
We try to stay exclusively organic where possible, so most of our fruit and veg aren’t sprayed with harmful chemicals. When it’s snack time, organic apples and pears are preferred over chips. We prepare meals from scratch rather than have ready made.
These things might be small but we feel they all add up. They help keep your children well fed and happy and that’s all the peace of mind you’re looking for when choosing a day care.
