Nutrition at Pleasant Time
At Pleasant Time, we strive to produce a quality food menu filled with healthy options, to get kids excited about meal times. Our licensed nutritionist on staff works to create meal ideas that educate and entertain our students in order to bring more awareness to healthy options.
Pleasant Times provides two full snacks per day. One in the morning, which includes milk, and the other in the afternoon. Snacks include aspects of each food group (carbs, protein, dairy, etc). The goal is to educate and excite kids about the food items presented to them. We encourage the kids to prepare the food on their own when appropriate, and work with them to complete the task.
A weekly nutritional newsletter is prepared to help parents learn about different food options to serve their child. The newsletters include educational information about calorie and sugar content, as well as information about illness and how to avoid it. Our nutritionist completes "lunchbox audits" to help parents understand what they are serving their children on a daily basis. Childhood obesity is a big problem, so we are doing our part to help eliminate it however we can!
