What is a daycare lunch menu?
Daily childcare menus are used by caregivers, home daycare providers and
owners to keep track of what is being prepared for lunch, snack and other
meals and share those choices with parents. Daycare menu plans can be as
detailed or succinct as you like. Some centers may only provide snacks, in
which case they may only provide a daycare snack menu, while other centers
will detail the ingredient list for all lunches and snacks provided. You can
plan out your daycare menu schedule either by day or by week.
Why is it important to use printable daycare menu templates?
You know your center's menu plan is awesome, why not show it off to families
and get a little more prepared in the process? Here are some of the top
reasons why you should use a preschool menu template every week:
Preparation for the week ahead: Filling out these childcare weekly
menus helps the center owner, director or administrator plan ahead to buy
all the food and groceries needed for the week.
Keep families aware: Families really appreciate a heads up to what
food is being served in the classroom. Especially for parents of children
that have a vegetarian, gluten-free or nut-free diet, receiving a daycare
meal menu form in advance can give them greater peace of mind.
Passing on information from your caterer If your center has a caterer
that doesn't provide preschool menus, you can always get the details from
them in advance and fill out your own blank daycare food menu.
Ensure your kiddos are getting a balanced diet By recording all the
meal options given to children at your center, you can ensure your daycare
menu has a variety of vegetables, fruits, grains and proteins to keep them
healthy and alert!
