Guilford Childcare Development

Catering for Kids

If kids are hungry, they can’t learn. So, when they ask, “When are we going to eat?” we’re ready. To us, food is serious business, and by serving healthy and culturally diverse foods, we are teaching children early on about good eating habits, making good choices, and maintaining healthy lifestyles.

Our Catering for Kids program delivers over 1,400 nutritious breakfasts and lunches daily to children in our childcare centers. All meals are prepared and delivered by highly trained kitchen staff.

What can I expect from the Catering for Kids program

  • Monthly menus, including special diet substitutions for children with special medical conditions
  • Menus that include culturally diverse foods and introduce the children to a variety of foods in a family-style setting
  • Nutritious meals that meet the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) requirements to the Head Start/Early Head Start Program centers and non-affiliated centers in the greater Guilford County area.
  • For Head Start/Early Head Start, nutritionist monitored meal patterns and portions, and counsel parents on nutrition as needed.
