At Oberlin Early Childhood Center, we cook as much of our food from scratch as we are able. We use the freshest ingredients available to maximize nutritional content and limit processed foods. We continually educate ourselves on agricultural and business practices to make conscious decisions when purchasing food.
The Food Program Manager is responsible for planning menus that (1) meet one-third of the recommended daily dietary allowances as most recently specified by the USDA CACFP, (2) include individual meal plans for children with religious or medical needs, and (3) periodically represents a variety of cultures. All menus are posted in the lobby and in every classroom.
