Meals

Two meals and two snacks are provided daily. The three-week rotation menu is prepared by the Hillcrest’s cook. You can find copies of the menu in the kitchen. All meals meet state and municipal standards for nutrition and follow the guidelines set by the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Our cook is dedicated to creating meals that are not only nutritious, but also satisfying and appealing to the children.

Parents are required to discuss any child’s special dietary needs with the Cook and Director, notify the staff of any allergies or dietary restriction and make sure that the information is stated clearly on the emergency card in the office. Parents must provide any special foods that may be required.

Parents of infants are offered the choice of Hillcrest providing formula, baby food prepared on site or providing these items for themselves. Currently Hillcrest offers Kirkland Brand formula and a competitive accredited brand of baby cereal.
