We're proud to support a more sustainable and healthy future for our children. As a result of our views, and the beliefs of most of our enrolled families, we have began serving Burbach's Countryside Dairy milk (1% and whole). Burbach’s milk comes from a Hartington, NE. Burbach’s milk does not get hauled in tankers and does not wait several days to be bottled, but instead their milk is delivered to Bright Eyes within 24-26 hours of being produced. The glass bottles their milk comes in helps preserve the fresh taste and keeps it colder. Unlike paper cartons or plastic, glass imparts no foreign flavor or odors. Burbach’s milk is also produced without the use of artificial hormones. The children can taste the difference and they LOVE it!
Parents must notify Bright Eyes Childcare Center of any dietary restrictions their child may have and reasonable accommodations will be made.
Infants are held while bottle-feeding (NO "bottle propping"). Parents must provide formula and baby food. Bright Eyes Daycare encourages breast-feeding and has appropriate refrigeration/freezer accommodations.
Bright Eyes Daycare & Early Learning Center nutrition starts with a well balanced meal and snack plan that encourages healthy eating at a young age. WE HAVEN'T SERVED A HOT DOG (any shape of form) SINCE OPENING! Meals are lovingly prepared onsite by our cook. For snacks, we provide organic or natural, or at least snacks that are free of syrups and food dyes. We believe the lesser the amount of snack ingredients, the better!
During meals and snacks, children experience proper table manners and mealtime etiquette. They learn about good nutrition and portion sizes. Trying new foods is encouraged. And in preschool the teachers sit and eat with the kids to help facilitate conversations.
