The purpose of this webpage is to show that I promote the use of nutritious and tasty meals and snacks for the children in my family child care program. My goal is to reach children before they begin to make their own eating decisions and help them establish good eating habits.

Below you will find my weekly menus for the next five weeks. Also, please email me with any questions or comments you have regarding the meals and snacks that I prepare and serve the children attending my family child care program.

Please click on the underlined foods to see the recipe for that food.

This page is under construction. Please check back again soon for more recipes. Thanks!!
