Nutrition Counts

If your child has a special nutritional need or requires an adaptation to our menu, we will work with your family to create a plan that adequately meets your child’s needs. Your child’s health and nutrition are most important to Laura.

Meals and snacks include a variety of food groups including meat and meat alternatives, bread and grains, fruits, vegetables and fluid milk.

Meals and snacks include carbohydrates, proteins, and fat to give children energy while maintaining total calories within recommended ranges specific to a child’s age group and level of activity.

Kids growing bodies need nutrients to grow strong and healthy and for proper brain development. Kids are with us in care for 2/3 of their meals so what we feed them is so important.

You may think, what difference does it make if mom or dad drives through Mikey D’s on the way home from daycare and gets the kids a happy meal every day. That’s when it makes even more different because the only nutritious food the kids are getting in Laura’s Daycare.
