The Early Learning Center nutrition project will present nutritious age appropriate meals, snacks and activities in which children are exposed to proper meal planning, nutritional facts, family style serving, appropriate socialization during meal time and how to serve everything offered at meal time. Curriculum and special event parties will include a healthy nutrition component such as cooking experiences and nutritional party treats. Children’s cooking experiments in the classrooms include nutritional information such as the new food pyramid and how to follow a recipe.
