Nutritious Food for Children in Albuquerque, NM

 
 
Proper nutrition is essential in the development of children; our childcare and learning centers have a nutrition education program to reflect that fact. Nutrition and learning is intertwined, and our breakfast and lunch programs are created with childhood nutrition standards firmly in mind.

Breakfast

Breakfast plays an important part in our child nutrition programs. Skipping breakfast can make children feel tired, restless, or irritable. In the morning, their bodies need to refuel for the day ahead; breakfast is a great way to give the body the refueling children need. Children who eat breakfast tend to eat healthier overall and are more likely to participate in physical activities.

Snacks and Lunch

As part of our complete child nutrition program, your child will enjoy morning and afternoon snacks and lunch that are nutritionally balanced and meet the required food components and portion size in each meal. We encourage the children in our care to at least try every food group that is offered. We participate in the child and Adult care food program (CACFP).
