Classroom staff at the ELC participates with the children in family style dining to support home living skills and socialization. Children are encouraged to serve themselves and eat the food presented but are never forced. We encourage children’s good health by serving nutritious meals & snacks and by teaching proper hygiene including hand washing and tooth brushing.
Our meals and snacks meet the current United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and the Delacare meal pattern requirements based on the age of each child. The ELC does not serve peanut or tree nut products, however we are not able to guarantee a nut free environment.
