At Akal Child Care, we believe that nutrition is important at every age. Children need proper nutrients in order to stay healthy and strong, and be active and engaged learners. We also recognize that providing children with nutrient rich food at a young age, can also help to establish a foundation for healthy eating habits and nutritional knowledge that your child can apply throughout life. Our breakfast, lunch and snack menus are developed in accordance with Ministry of Education requirements and Canada’s Food Guide. We have partnered with the “Lunch Lady” to offer fresh meals and snacks at our centre every day. The Lunch Lady follows Ontario’s nutritional guidelines and has a Certified Food and Nutrition Manager on staff, while also working with a Registered Dietitian to plan and prepare meals. We also ensure that fruits and vegetables are incorporated into our menu on a daily basis.
Akal Child Care is a nut-free facility and we offer 100% vegetarian meals and snacks. We are also able to fully accommodate children with dietary or religious restrictions, and allergies by providing nutritious substitutes.
