Food and Nutrition

UNOW provides a nutritious, hot lunch and hearty morning and afternoon snack every day prepared fresh on site by our kitchen staff. UNOW participates in The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) which encourages family-style dining as a method for providing nutritious meals in an Early Care and Education (ECE) setting. UNOW makes every effort to ensure that CACFP meal pattern requirements are fulfilled and that balanced and nutritious foods are served daily. Menus are posted weekly on the UNOW Website and sent out weekly via the UNOW parent list serve. UNOW is committed to serving meals that meet the USDA standards and promote lifelong healthy eating habits. Menus are monitored by the CACFP program to ensure meals low in sugar, salt and fats.
