Locally Sourced Fresh Ingredients
Zoe’s Tender Years Child Care believes that nutrition is essential to fuel optimal growth and development for kids to reach their full potential. We have a chef in house who makes our lunches and snacks from scratch, using fresh ingredients sourced locally whenever possible. Our chef, along with 3 other staff members have all completed their Food Handler training course which meets the requirements of the Ministry of Health. Our menu rotates on a four-week basis and is modified seasonally to offer a variety and balance. Our guidelines reduce the intake of sugar and salt as we believe that food choices during childhood lay the foundation for lifelong eating habits into adolescence and adulthood. Our centre is completely peanut/nut-free and we work with families with children that have other food sensitivities and allergies to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the children in our centre. If your child requires a special diet for cultural or medical reasons, we will do our best to accommodate and work with our families.
