Sample Menu

We don’t usually put out a weekly menu for TK, but rather we pick something “random” to make for our meals and snacks each day. But, like any one else’s meal plans, we do get repetitious, and somewhat predictable, which is what makes it possible for me to produce an accurate Sample menu with realistic possibilities of things your child might eat when they are at TK.

All of the meals require a fruit and/or a vegetable. Here are some typical fruits and vegetables we serve at TK:

(in the general order of frequency)

FRUIT

fresh fruit: apples, oranges, bananas, grapes, cantaloupe, kiwi, watermelon, strawberries, pineapple, raisins, pomegranate

canned(only served when we are out of fresh fruit): applesauce, canned fruit cocktail, canned peaches

VEGETABLES

fresh: carrots, zucchini, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, tomato

frozen, cooked: corn, peas, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots

Breakfast

a fruit (see list above)

Bob’s homemade Pumpkin Pancakes, or Whole wheat toast, or frozen waffles, or old fashioned oatmeal, or Cream of Wheat (unflavored), or Malto Meal

and a nice cold glass of milk

Lunch or dinner

We always serve a main course. Some examples:

Spaghetti pasta and meat sauce

Macaroni shells pasta and Cheese

Cheesy Rice

Burritos with hamburger meat, beans and cheese

Burritos with eggs and cheese

Burritos with beans and cheese

Cheese Quesadillas

Beef and cheese lunchmeat Sandwiches on whole wheat bread

Turkey and cheese lunch meat sandwiches on whole wheat bread

Home-made chicken with rice soup

Homemade pizza with homemade pizza dough

Fish Sticks with oven fries

Chicken Nuggets

one fruit and one vegetable (see list above)

and a nice cold glass of milk

Snacks

Snacks are fun. I like to try to be creative with snacks. I can’t really list specific snacks because they are just different fun combinations of the same type of foods.

All snacks must have at least two of the following four elements:

Fruit or Vegetable (see lists above)

and/or

a protein – usually cheese or peanut butter or yogurt

and/or

a bread – which is usually either whole wheat bread or some kind of “healthy” cracker

and/or

milk
