Mommies with kids in Daycare...I need help please

Recommended Posts

Hi Mommies (and Daddies)

 

I am putting together a proposal for a new account, a full service daycare.

 

Most of my clients would range from 2-5, with a few older kids in the afternoon. We will be serving 5 meals/snacks per day - breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, snack.

 

So far, all of the info I have gathered from the state and distributors rely very heavily on processed, packaged foods. I don't cook this way and HATE to start kids off with poor eating habits.

 

My questions are:

1) What do your kids like to eat?

2) What foods would you like to see provided for your child(ren)?

3) Will your child try new foods?

4) Is there anything in particular that you like or dislike about the food service program?

5) Do you pay attention to the menus sent home?

6) Do you ever have to supplement foods and send snacks with your child?

 

Thanks!

Hey Erin,

 

Maybe this will help. Alot of the daycares I have used for Noah have had pretty open food plans. They were all home based daycares though. I would def think about all the fruit and veggie options with yogurts, Dressings and such.. really dipper type foods, hot lunches for the kids 3 times a week... lots parents don't like when your kid has a sandwich everday for lunch when they are wee little ones. Finger foods are great all around. In general Noah likes to try new things as long as he can see what they are made of .. like say pigs in a blanket.. you say that to him and he needs to know what it is ... but with fun names... it works!

My 2 are in daycare and my provider does it out of her home. She used to provide lunch for the kids but a lot of the kids had allergies, couldn't eat certain things or just didn't like some things. It became a hassle so she changed up her policy and everybody has to bring their own lunch/snack. So to answer a few of your questions.......

 

1) What do your kids like to eat?

It may sound weird but my kids love fruits AND veggies. Green beans and broccoli are probably the least messy for little kids. Of course macaroni and cheese but I try not to let them eat too much of it. Nuggets of course but I buy all white meat. I switch up on the cold and hot foods. the same thing can get pretty boring.

2) What foods would you like to see provided for your child(ren)?

If it were mine providing the food I would like to see more veggies and fruits. Warm foods, not just cold cuts and chips.

3) Will your child try new foods?

My kids always try new things and sometimes it's all about presentation.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
