Organic, Anti-biotics Free Menu

With a fully licensed, commercial-grade kitchen, our school chef prepares, on a daily basis, a variety of “made-from-scratch” foods made from locally-sourced, organic, and anti-biotic free ingredients. In addition, our menu is low in sodium and sugar, includes selections from each of Canada’s Food Groups, and is dietitian approved. We are attentive to our children with individual needs (i.e. allergies, ethnic values, age), and we are happy to modify our menu to cater to these needs as requested.

Our Menu

Inspired Little Eaters

To help children learn about new foods, we:

  • Offer a variety of different foods based on Canada’s Food Guide, Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide, and York Region’s ‘A Public Health Guide for Child Care Providers’
  • Incorporate a variety of colours, shapes, temperatures, and textures to promote variety
  • Serve new foods along with familiar foods
  • Promote and support diversity by including dishes that reflect various cultures and traditions.

Everyday, we serve 1 meal and 2 snacks with a total of 4 choices of vegetables and fruits, 2 choices of grain products, 2 choices of milk and alternatives, and 1 choice of meat and alternatives.

We offer organic 2% milk, and incorporate organic/anti-biotic free ingredients into our daily menu. Filtered water is always made available to drink, including between meal and snack times. 

We offer a least one dark green and one orange vegetable or fruit each day. Most of our grain products are whole grain. Foods from each food group is prepared with little or no added fat, sugar, or salt.

Organic Fruits and Vegetables on the Dirty Dozen List: these fruits and veggies normally will have their skin consumed so there’s a high risk of consuming the pesticides and other chemicals even after a thorough wash – that’s why we always serve organic for these foods

Milk: we will always provide organic milk (2%)
