Nutrition at Educare
At Educare Academy, we take Nutrition seriously. Children attending full-time usually consume half to three-quarters of their daily calories at our child care centers. This means we have a great influence on your child’s nutrition, and helping them to shape eating habits. Educare's monthly menus are created under the guidance of a food and nutrition professional.
We always provide whole grains, meat, dairy, fruits and vegetables on our menu's. Our serving sizes of foods are all developmentally appropriate by age. (Infants, Toddlers, Preschool and Grade School).
Educare Academy also participates in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program administered by the Ohio Department of Education, Office for Child Nutrition. This program insures that we provide nutritious meals and snacks as a regular part of our child care. In result, this will contribute to the wellness, healthy growth, and development of infants and young children in our academy!
