We are proud of the nutritional well balanced meals provided at the Centre. We cook with whole grains and fresh produce, and the emphasis is on meeting the nutritional needs of young children. The cook’s menu is international, and we are sensitive to the special-dietary needs of the children. If your child has food allergies or requires a special diet for any reason, please complete a Special Diet Request Form for your child’s file; the cook and the program staff will be informed of your child’s special needs. Unfortunately, Sunflower does not have the ability to provide a kosher kitchen. Families requesting either kosher or halal-only meals for their children have the option of requesting vegetarian meals.
Since we are licensed by the Ministry of Education, we have a legislated obligation to develop a policy on children’s nutrition which is consistent with the Ministry guidelines.
