Client Wellness Policy

Our goal and mission for our children is to be healthy. Our policy is that the following guidelines be followed:

Educating our children on healthy eating habits, which may include paying attention to what they are eating, cutting back on sugars (candy, snacks cakes, etc.), soda and caloric intake (portion sizes).

Scheduling time for children to get out and participate in physical exercise, such as walking, playing basketball, etc.

Preparing menus that assist in helping children with their food intake, by not offering foods that consist of high volumes of sugars and fats.

Our Dietary Staff and other workers are encouraged to talk to the children about healthy eating habits and how unhealthy eating habits can affect them in the long run.
