The Importance of Nutrition in Children

[object Object]

Nutrition is important at every age, especially for kids. Children need proper nutrients to stay healthy and strong.

Nutrition for children can help to establish a foundation for healthy eating habits and nutritional knowledge that kids can apply throughout life.

At iKids Montessori Academy we believe healthy food and good eating habits greatly affect the way children learn and grow.

Children need a variety of nutrient-dense foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein, fish and adequate calories in order to grow and develop. We are committed to providing children with nutritious meals, which is why we have partnered with Wholesome Kids catering for all our delicious daily lunches.

Wholesome Kids Catering is a well-known business that enriches the lives of over 27,000 kids each day by providing fresh and healthy meals and snacks to schools and daycares.

Their menu focuses on simple, healthy foods, that are lower in sugar and salt, and give kids the nourishment they need. They use wholesome ingredients that give kids the energy and nutrients to grow and develop, be healthy and active.

At iKids Montessori Academy, we respect and make every effort in accommodating food restrictions, special diets and allergies. Our facility is 100% nut-free, pork-free and shellfish-free.

We believe that offering many different foods is the best way to ensure a child is receiving a variety of vitamins and minerals that help keep their growing body strong and healthy. Most importantly, the meals are approved by our little taste-testers, the children!

Check out some examples of our weekly meal plans.
