I am just starting to enter the world of meals at daycare. Until now, I have been sending purees and formula. 'The ladies' think that Alex needs more, and pointed me to the daily menu. While my kid is still pretty young and I want to be the one that intros food to him, I took a quick look, and...YUCK!
All of the food is carby and white flour stuff. I felt comfortable commenting that I'll bring my own for a while because it doesn't look overly nutritious. The teachers agreed, and said that it meets the state standards. One also pointed out that we are in S. Carolina, and a fruit or veg is not required, so in turn, they aren't often provided. WTH? Breakfast: Pancakes Lunch: Grilled Cheese and potato chips, also cinnamon bread, toasted bread with cheese, etc. Not a fruit or veg in sight.
Have you found that daycare food is not up to your standards? (I don't really know what my 'standards' are yet, but at first glance, this ain't it!) If so, do you send different/additional food? For older kids, I would think they want to eat what the other kids are eating, so do they actually eat what you send?
For some reason, this is really bugging me...
