Sample Daycare Menus

The following menus are examples of meals served in my home and meet the
guidelines of the USDA & the federal food program...I am a member of Soutwest Food Program. If a child is not able to have certain required foods (ie. milk), a special diet form must be signed by a physican and updated every 6 months.

*Note that special needs diets must be supplied by the parents.

Children are offered food from each food group and encourged to try new things, however, if they do not want to eat something they are not required to do so.

Infants are required to have breast milk/formula and baby food until their first birthday.

This "menu" shows the USDA Requirements that I must follow in order to be a part of the federal food program.
