International Menu

Menu example

Discovery Preschool's menu is an International menu, introducing children to foods from around the world. The recipes have been adapted to be child friendly, with no heavy spices. We participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program, and observe the CACFP nutritional guidelines in planning our daily menus. Breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack are served to all children. We encourage, but do not force children to try new foods, helping develop healthy attitudes toward a wide variety of food.
 
We offer substitute food items for children with food allergies or special dietary guidelines.
 
Each day we highlight foods from different countries. We are careful to include meals with salads, fresh fruits and vegetables, and healthy snack choices. Whenever possible, we will use Montana grown foods, and organic vegetables from the Farmer's Market. The majority of our menu is home-made from scratch, with fresh ingredients. Toddler meals will include finger foods and menu items are substituted when necessary for children 2 and under.

Below are a few examples of the lunchtime meals we offer or have offered the children at Discovery Preschool. Menus rotate seasonally.
