We take food very seriously. We feed your children the same food we feed to our own children, as well as every member of our staff. It is our goal to provide healthy, nutritious, delicious food with a wide variety. We do not provide 100% organic food because not all foods are available in an organic variety. Also, some non-organic foods do not have pesticide residues, and we feel these are okay for everyone to consume. Rest-assured that the “Dirty Dozen,” as identified by the Environmental Working Group (see below), will always be organic, along with many others. Please see the list below. GMO’s, on the other hand, are non-negotiable, therefore, our food is 100% GMO-free. We also do not use serve food with partially-hydrogenated oils, MSG or food coloring. 

Our drinking water is either Triple Filtered Reverse Osmosis Water Or Poland Spring Water.

  1. Apples
  2. Strawberries
  3. Blueberries
