At The Sandlot, we actively engage in the USDA Food Program. This is a federally funded Child Care Food Program (CCFP) designed to provide children with healthy and balanced meals during their time in care.
As licensed childcare providers, we are reimbursed by the CCFP for serving meals and snacks that meet the USDA requirements to the children in our care. Parents can rest assured that there is no additional cost for their child to participate in this program and that their child will always be served a nutritious, well-balanced and child friendly meal that will promote ultimate health.
Our Meal times that are set forth by the Food Program and cannot be served outside of these meal times:
Here at The Sandlot, we believe that a healthy lifestyle begins with a proper diet. After all, healthy eating is important for the proper formation of bones, teeth, muscles and a healthy heart. Your child’s diet can affect growth and development, so we make sure that every meal or snack your child eats meets or exceeds the USDA Food guidelines expectations.
As your child’s parents, you can also help promote good nutrition by setting a good example. Healthy eating habits and regular exercise should be a regular part of your family’s life. It is much easier if everyone in the house follows these guidelines, than if your child has to do it alone. As they say, “Monkey see, Monkey do!”
