Meals & Nutrition
It is our goal at the center to provide nutritious meals and snacks that allow the children to grow and become healthy young adults.
The Campus & Community Children's Center participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program and follows all CACFP guidelines. For more information you can visit the CACFP website at:
Our menus limit sugar, food additives and animal proteins. Gum, candy, and 'junk food' are not permitted at the center.
CCCC is a Peanut-Free Zone: The center recognizes children's allergies and sensitivity toward certain foods. In order to adhere to everyone, we ask that you not bring food to care that contains peanuts or any sort of nut product, as the Center is a peanut-free zone.
Snacks & Lunch Policy:
Infants: Young infants will be fed according to his or her own schedule. During lunch, infants not yet eating table food will be served cereals and jarred or pureed foods. CCCC participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program and is required to provide all of your child's food including iron-fortified formula. Family members may provide breast milk or an alternate formula. It is recommended that infants try new foods at home before they are added the new food list.
