Nutrition

Healthy Eating

Nutrition is a big part of the Fireflies experience. We teach our students about healthy eating, portion sizes and how to prepare and serve simple meals and snacks. 

 

 What They Learn 

Getting our students involved in meal preparation teaches them responsibility, life skills and exposes them to basic math concepts and language skills.

 

Our Food Sources

Because we believe in clean eating, we provide healthy, nutritious and balanced meals and snacks. We avoid refined sugar. We serve water often and skip the sugary juices. As much as possible we purchase organic fruits and vegetables when we are not able to grow them ourselves in our school garden. We have a business purchase account with Pilgrim's Market. Meat and dairy are humanely raised and hormone free. 

 

If your child has specific dietary needs, please let us know. We work closely with our parents to ensure all children’s needs are met.
