Director’s Corner – Janice Barnes

Director’s Corner for April

Dear Parents,

Here at Kids’ B.A.S.E. and The Little School, good nutrition is something we strive for with all of our students.  We are constantly working on improving our menu, most recently we added a Vegetarian option for our students. We have also listened to your suggestions on our survey and your request for healthier foods.  We are excited to let you know we have partnered with Jodi Greebel, MS.RDN, a Pediatric Registered Dietician, who consults for schools, to improve the food we offer here at Kids’ B.A.S.E. and The Little School.

Some of our goals for the beginning of next school year are:  all organic dairy products, higher quality ingredients, less artificial colors or flavors, more fruits and vegetables at snack time and more whole grains.  We will be starting to make some of the changes immediately including serving only organic milk, organic eggs and improving the snacks that we offer.  Our goal is to improve upon the quality and nutrition content of our meals and snacks in a way that is still kid-friendly.

Your children can still look forward to favorites like macaroni and cheese and chicken tenders but from higher quality products and with more organic ingredients.  Along with this, you will see more fruits and vegetables offered at snack and at meal times.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
