Much like gardening, baking and cooking activities are incorporated into curriculum! Not only do the children learn about the process of watching food evolve from seed to table; they take pride in their creations — enhancing their creativity and self-esteem. After many requests from Families, Blossom created a cookbook which includes tried and true children’s favorites!
We include organic whole wheat flours, non-hydrogenated ingredients and limit sugars by sweetening with honey or other alternatives. We strive to use organic produce when possible, including items from our gardens when available. Our goal as a Center is to avoid pre-made foods by using whole grains and beans in hearty casseroles, soups and breads. During meals and snacks children are encouraged to eat healthy portions. Our Dietary Manager will address special needs.
What a treat! We are adding local berries into home baked blueberry muffins.
