Commitment Statement
“In light of the obesity and diabetes epidemics, efforts to promote healthy lifestyles are critically needed. Building a strong future starts today.”

-Cindy Wolff, CNAP Director

Supporting Healthy Lifestyles:  We are committed at Parkside Preschool and Daycare to creating a healthy environment for all our children by providing an excellent nutrition program and plenty of physical activity. Parkside promotes healthy eating by serving appropriate foods and role modeling healthy eating behaviors.  We encourage active play by providing plenty of indoor/outdoor active playtime and role modeling active lifestyles.  We make it a top priority to educate staff, parents and children on the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices.  The time the children spend at Parkside will enhance the growth and development of healthy behaviors which will help create a foundation for their future health and well-being.

We provide 2 meals, breakfast and lunch plus 2 afternoon snacks (served at 2:00PM and 5:00PM)  All children will be given nutritious meals, consisting of children friendly foods with a main course, vegetable, fruit, and milk.

-Julie Webb Kelley

 

“The early years are when you give your child a foundation for establishing a proper diet. If kids learn about the importance of eating healthy early in their lives, they will not have to relearn as an adult.”

-Nicole Henderson
