Nutrition

TKC participates in the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program*.  This is a nutrition program implemented by the state that provides the latest best practice for child nutrition and training.  The center is provided with meal plans that offer a variety of well balanced meals proportioned for the child’s age.  TKC centers have 3 meal services times: breakfast, lunch, and snack.  No outside food is permitted to be served during meal service (with the exception of baby food), and any altered meals must have prior approval.

In some cases, a child’s doctor or the parent will prescribe an individualized menu for a child with specific allergy and nutritional needs. With our fully commercial kitchens and dedicated chefs and crew we can ensure that each child’s needs are taken care of.
