Meals and Food Progam
“Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit,
wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.”
Our Food Program
Meals and snacks are provided free of charge because we participate in the USDA Child Care Food Program (CCFP). (Subject to change depending on Federally blocked money.)
All children will be enrolled in the USDA’s Child Care Food Program at the time of child care registration.
Keiki Co. will provide only foods that are nutritious and well-balanced in accordance with CCFP.
Meals are served at the following times:
Breakfast 8:30-9:00 am Lunch 11:45 - 12:15 pm Snack 3:30- 3:45
It is the parents' responsibilty to ensure that the staff is aware of any food allergies or food restrictions your child(ren) may have. A doctor's note may be required for any food restrictions and alternate food supplements.
Specialized infant formula is not provided. Keiki Co. will prepare formula that is provided by the parents, as needed. It is a requirement of the CCFP that all infant formula be iron fortified. Infants are kept to their own feeding schedule. It is the parent's responsibility to inform the staff of any formula/food changes.
For birthdays & other parties, nutritious treats are welcome. Cereal snacks, crackers, fruit, veggie sticks, cookies & cupcakes are recommended. Please notify the staff ahead of time so that plans may be made accordingly.
