Tea Time- What does your childcare feed your children

Postby JHJC » Sat Aug 15, 2009 4:54 pm

Dear Parents,
for those of you that send your kids for full day childcare, do you know what they feed your child after their nap/ Tea time?
I saw cakes a few times, another mummy and me decided to take turns to go source and provide the children better food!! We will go buy and pass it to the school.
Any suggestion? .........other than cheap cakes from supermarket?(no cooking required please, we are FTWM) :wink:

Hi JHJC :

From the menu at the noticeboard (i vouched with DS the authenticity of the listing... hehe), the centre provides the following :

- red/green bean soup
- small muffins / pandan cakes
- small MALAI GAO (chinese rice cakes)
- nonya kueys
- carrot/ yam cakes
- buttered / peanut butter bread
- red bean buns
- cereal / oatmeal
- sweet potato soup

that's all i can recall... then they will just rotate for the 3rd and 4th week...
Hope these helps. :wink:

Hi JHJC,

May I intro myself first. I'm a mother of 4 who had recently setup a CCC to establish stronger bonding with my little ones. I'm a newbie in forum hoping to share knowledge and experiences with other parents.

I saw your msg and tot of sharing about the sys in CCC.
Its really totful to have parents coming forward to provide healthy food.

However, all CCC has to 'register' their menu with MCYS and any change in the food served has to be recorded in a book. That's why you'll noticed that all CCC menu is drawn on a monthly basis and will repeat every month/year. This is meant for tracing purpose if there is any case of food-poisoning or food allergies in some children.

I'm not so sure about the CCC your child is in..but you may want to consult their management if they are agreeable to your arrangement.


Cheers

I agree with mum-of-4, i remember my centre mentioned that the menu needs to be preregistered by the relevant authorities.
DS's centre has a drink (liquid) and solids from the list that i mentioned in various combination.
Even for birthday celebrations done in class, they always request that we inform them in advance what we will be giving to the classmates. So that they can prepare to inform the other parents, if necessary and take note for reporting/tracking purposes. No candies in class policy holds :)

Hi JHJC,

Other than to ensure that the food is easily available, it has to be halal as we have malay children in the center. As such, we provide breakfast/snacks like bread with either peanut butter, jam, cheese or margarine, hard boiled egg, chee cheong fun (from NTUC), cereal with milk, pandan/chiffon cake, mantou and occasionally green bean soup, and drinks are either milo , milk, chinese barley or chrysanthemum.
