The Importance of Nutrition for Children in Daycare

A study has shown that “most of us think of vegetables as part of a main meal whether they are mixed in with a stir fry or on the plate next to the meat”. Sadly, children also soon learn to think of vegetables in the same way. For children to not only get enough vegetables, but also learn to appreciate and enjoy them, they need to experience eating vegetables many times a day.

At Tiny Scholars Child Care & Preschool we promote eating the vegetables they grow in their own garden (of course, after appropriate cleaning tests are achieved). We are extremely passionate about children’s nutrition. Children have their own unique nutrient needs and meeting those needs is vital for a child to grow up big, strong and healthy.
