Capital Day Care prides itself on providing an exceptional seasonal menu that includes different types of ethnic dishes and tries to use local and homegrown produce as much as possible. Our full time permanent cook is responsible for menu planning, shopping and preparing 2 snacks and 1 full meal per day. We follow the Canadian food guide and provide 2/3’s of a child’s daily required nutrition.

 

 

Our center is nut free and does not serve pork products. Children with allergies or food restrictions will receive a similar menu as those who don’t have any allergies.

 

 

We pay close attention to what appeals to a young child’s palate and at the same time use those likes to expand their experience with food.

 

Over the past several years we have been a member of the Community Garden at Brewer Park, staff and parents are involved in the selection and planting of various types of vegetables to be used at the daycare for lunch and snack. It is a fun way to be a part of our community!
