Meals and snacks
During their stay at a Kids and Carrots childcare centre, the children receive various meals and snacks. In the morning, the children eat different types of fresh fruit; we mainly offer seasonal fruit, but also introduce the children to different types of (exotic) fruit.
For lunch, the children are given three types of fresh vegetables, a cereal product such as pasta, rice, quinoa, bulgur, etc. and a vegetarian product or fish. Lunch is freshly prepared by the pedagogical staff in the group and heated in the steamer. In this way, the taste, vitamins and minerals of the products are optimally preserved.
In the afternoon, the children eat a cracker or spelt waffle topped with humus, goat’s cheese, avocado or vegetable spread, among other things. As a snack in between meals, the children eat a spelt soup stick or dried fruit. With their meals and snacks, the children drink water, tea or, occasionally, highly diluted thick juice. We also serve goat’s milk instead of cow’s milk. Goat milk is easier to digest and is less likely to cause hypersensitivity reactions and gastrointestinal complaints. Moreover, essential minerals are better absorbed in goat’s milk than in cow’s milk.
