Good nutrition is a key part of our Healthy Bodies program that promotes healthy eating and an active lifestyle. We know that the right food at the right time not only boosts energy, but can elevate a child’s mood and thinking skills during a crucial development stage. That’s why each Primrose School is staffed with a chef who follows a balanced menu plan from our National Nutrition Expert to provide fresh meals and healthy snacks. It’s a vital feature of our Healthy Bodies Program, so you can rest assured that your little one is eating well throughout the day.
Here’s an example of some of the healthy and delicious meals and snacks that your child can enjoy during the day. For this week’s actual menu, please contact your school.
Oatmeal with diced apples
Whole grain oats are rich in immune-boosting minerals. Plus, they make for a hearty breakfast with crunchy diced apples.
Yogurt with fruit and milk
Everyone knows oranges are rich in vitamin c, minerals and fiber, but did you know that oranges are also full of anti-oxidants?
Chicken soft tacos, seasoned black beans, pineapples and milk
Packed with protein, B-vitamins and soluble fiber, black beans are as nutritious as they are tasty with tacos.
Fresh vegetables with hummus
Baby carrots offer a big dose of antioxidants like beta-carotene that help support eyesight and strengthen the immune system.
