Nutrition

We serve a breakfast, a noon meal and a snack. These are nutritionally planned for each age group at the center and at Summer Kids Club.

We encourage the children to try two bites of everything on their plates, but do not force the children to eat something. They may have seconds on their favorites as long as there is food left.

Staff members encourage the children to use good table manners and the use of our favorite words: “please” and “thank you.” Children must ask to be excused from the table and assume the responsibility of clearing their dishes.

Morrison Community Day Care Center participates in the Illinois State Board of Education Child Care Food Program and meets or exceeds all nutritional standards for the various ages of children we serve. The food program is available to eligible children without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age or handicap.
