Nutrition and Health
Sundowners is committed to providing children with healthy food and food choices. Our environment provides for the development of lifelong healthy eating, nutritional and wellness practices and daily physical activity. Healthy, nutritional meals are provided keeping in mind allergies and food sensitivities a child may have. All food that is provided will offer varying food choices that meet the Canada Food Guide requirements and standards. Provisions can be made for vegetarian and diet restrictions due to religion and culture. Sundowners provides nutritious snacks twice a day and a hot meal at lunch for children attending full day programs. Menus are posted on the Parent Bulletin Board and notices posted if changes are made.
Sundowners will strive to provide and introduce children to fresh fruits, a variety of vegetables, lean meats, whole grain options, and milk and water options.
It may be necessary from time to time to eliminate certain food items in some programs due to severe allergies and other food sensitivities.
