Kids Eat Healthy Here
Too many schools, including some in St. Johns, FL, have resorted to serving students fatty foods and sugary drinks because it’s easier. What they don’t realize is that poor nutrition in school meals is a major contributor to childhood obesity and lower academic performance. As many as half of a child’s meals can be eaten at school, making good nutrition in these facilities imperative.
Bartram Academy doesn’t work that way. We have a set four-week rotating organic menu. Copies of our daycare menu plans are posted on both Parent Communication Boards in the hallway and located below, so you always know what your child is being fed on any given day. If you’d like to learn more about how we prepare food, come see us and we can arrange for one of our kitchen staff members to show you our kitchen and speak with you. We’re always happy to answer questions about our menus and the food we serve, because every parent has a right to be involved in their child’s diet.
We Serve Fresh Foods Every Day
You never see a can in our kitchens; we work hard to find fresh new foods that meet our high standards and requirements. We’ve created an all-natural preschool menu as part of our sustainability efforts. Everything we serve is organic, fresh, or fresh-frozen. There are no partially hydrogenated oils, no dyes, and none of the dreaded high fructose corn syrup either. This prevents a number of diseases and health problems later on.
Growing Healthy Children Into Healthy Adults
Part of the reason we strive to maintain an organic preschool menu is that kids who learn to eat healthy when they’re little are more likely to do so later in life. Ensuring they consume an adequate amount of vitamins and minerals also furthers their development and growth. This is understandably tricky for parents due to picky eaters and time constraints. Rest assured, we’ll always do our part for your kids. We feed them the right food groups in the right portions and will find healthy choices for even the fussiest of eaters.
Make sure your child isn’t limited to just unhealthy choices. Contact us to tour our kitchens today.
