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:
