About Our Nutrition at Shining Faces Childcare & Learning Centre
Our centre provides all children with a morning snack (intended to compliment their morning breakfast at home), a filling hot lunch, an afternoon snack and a 5 pm snack. Organic 2% milk is served during the morning snack and at lunch. Spring water is readily available to the children at all times. Our healthy menu is designed to follow the Canadian Food Guide and meets the requirements of the Early Childhood Education Act. We have dedicated kitchen staff that manage children’s allergies, food restrictions, and substitutes that are in compliance with both the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health.
Shining Faces has all food and beverages delivered fresh daily from The Lunch Lady. Their meals are made of healthy and delicious 'homemade' food with the children’s favourites in mind. Their passionate kitchen team works hard to create menus that offer plenty of variety, provide allergy substitutions and leverage seasonally-available foods from local farms. They use whole grain, whole wheat and multigrain breads, pastas and rice to maximize the nourishment children get in each bite. Menus are seasonally based to capitalize on fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The catering company's facility is 100% nut-free and shellfish-free. Allergy-free meals are prepared in a separate area by a separate chef. They can accommodate most allergies, multi-allergy requirements and dietary restrictions. Everything they serve is developed and approved by their knowledgeable Nutritionist and by a third-party Registered Dietitian.
Shining Faces posts the weekly menus on our announcements board for parents' review and comments.
