Meals and Snacks

Katelyn Picking Tomato At this time, we serve breakfast and snacks. Parents supply lunches for their children. What makes Mariposa different from other child care programs is the variety of  food choices we explore. We are always trying new fruits and vegetables, not only from local producers, but varieties from around the world as well. We use our garden to gain appreciation for the foods we eat and the care that is needed to produce it. When possible, we will have the children help with meal preparation activities. Participation with food preparation helps them to develop fine motor skills and cultivates a healthy interest in the food they’re eating.
