Midland Child Care Centre is a vegetarian centre. We provide a nutritious breakfast, hot lunch, and 2 daily snacks, all prepared fresh each day on the premise. We rotate our 4 week menus, which are developed and reviewed annually by a registered dietician. Our menus are both nutritious and appealing for children, and follow the recommendations in the Canada's Food Guide. We have an alternate menu for children with special dietary needs or allergies, and maintain an updated allergy list for all children in the centre, which is posted on a table in every classroom. In addition, we conduct an annual review of our anaphylaxis policy and training with all staff and the centre's supervisor.
