"Nutritious Yummy meals at the daycare "

February 16, 2023

Healthy eating can look different in every family and we know that nutrition affects the growth of a child, emotionally and physically. That is why it is important for us, at Tiny Hoppers Burlington South, to ensure that children are given nutritious and delicious options for meal times throughout the day.

Our in-house chef makes fresh food, adheres to the Canada Food Guide and holds a valid Food Safe certificate. We cater for all  cultures of our community and explore a variety of taste and textures. When a young child is exposed to a variety of tastes and textures, they are more willing to try new food items later on in life.

While exploring foods can be exciting and fun, it can be nerve-wrecking and daunting for families with children with mild to severe allergies. Food Allergy Canada (2022) reports “there is no cure for food allergies and is considered a public health issue in Canada. Almost 500,000 Canadian children under 18 years have food allergies and 1-in-2 Canadian households are impacted by a food allergy”. This is why allergy safety is a top priority at Tiny Hoppers Burlington South. Each member of our team is required to obtain an Allergy Aware certificate. “Allergyaware.ca offers online anaphylaxis courses for the community, developed by leaders in health education – Food Allergy Canada and Leap Learning Technologies – and medically reviewed by Canadian allergist” (2022, Food Allergy Canada).
