Guiding Light Montessori believes that good nutrition is essential to the growth and development of every child. Research indicates that healthy food is directly related to brain and body development.

Children move, run, roll, work, play all day long and their bodies need healthy nutrients, a well balance diet gives them the fuel to energise their bodies and keeps them active and alert.

We support locally sourced food, so from farm to table the food is fresh and retains its nutrients. Six weeks rotational and seasonal menus for hot lunch and two snacks daily are planned by qualified Registered Dietitian.

All of our menus and snacks are prepared in accordance with the Child Care and Early Years Act (CCEYA), the Canada Food Guide, and support Municipal and Regional Criteria.

Safety is our top priority, we strive to be nut-free and manage food allergies and food restrictions to meet the cultural and religious needs of our children.

Water is always available for hydration in every classroom and snack table in each room is available in case any of our children feel hungry.
