Menus

Discoveries provides nutritious meals and snacks that exceed the guidelines of the federal food program. 


Infant feedings will be individualized based on feeding plans created by each family.  Families are required to provide formula.  Discoveries will provide baby cereal and homemade baby food.  An individualized menu is planned weekly for each infant.


Toddler meals are based on a three week menu cycle.  Alternate foods will be served if a child has food allergies, is a vegetarian/vegan, or has religious food restrictions.  Discoveries provides two meals and two snacks each day. Toddlers receive age appropriate servings of food with seconds available upon request.  Children are encouraged but never forced to try new foods.


Crackers, cereal, and water are available at any time if a child is hungry between our scheduled meals and snacks. Discoveries is a low-sugar facility - we do not serve sugary cookies, breakfast pastries, cake, candy, fruit juice, etc. We are also a peanut free facility. Each week we serve one meatless lunch with an alternate source of protein. 


Menus have been approved by our food program sponsor and are posted below.  You can check our calendar to see which week's menu we are following on any specific week.
