Food and Nutrition at Children’s Village Bloomington
Good nutrition isn’t just a nice idea: It’s critical to the well-being of our kids. Children’s Village Bloomington follows Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) guidelines to make sure our meals are well-balanced and nutritious. Fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and various milk options are included in our meals, which are served up family style. We provide kids with breakfast, lunch, and regular snacks, and always encourage them to drink plenty of water.
Many of the children we care for require special diets, whether due to parental preference, religious requirements, or medical needs. We work to accommodate these requests in keeping with the guidelines provided by the CACFP. For medical need requests, including allergies, we do require a physician’s statement detailing what to avoid and proper substitutions, as required by state regulations.
If you have any questions about our special diet requirements, or about our food practices in general, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
The meals and snacks we serve are designed to be healthy and age-appropriate for kids we care for. Here’s an example of the kinds of foods you can expect for your children.
- Whole grain cereal
- Wheat crackers
- Cheese sticks
- California blend vegetables
- Fettucine with chicken (homemade)
