A beautiful tossed salad, of course. Complete with organic romaine lettuce and kale, topped with fresh grapefruit and oranges, and olive oil. The lettuce was home-grown here in our very own garden, and the fruit was provided from the Kiwi class’ fruit and vegetable basket (thank you, freinds!). Tasty and nutritional is how we like to keep it here at Healthy Beginnings Montessori House!
The delicious aroma of home-cooked spaghetti filled the halls this morning as we prepared for lunch time. Ms. Tami, our honorary Chef (Head of School, Owner and Directress) was busy all morning boiling noodles, slicing fresh vegetables and fruits, sauteing Italian sausage, in addition to a large pot of organic vegetable tomato sauce made from scratch. Lunch time could not come soon enough!
All of our meals are prepared from careful observation, assessing which foods the children do/do not like to eat. This meal proved to be a success, as with many of the other food we serve on a daily basis. Our young friends learn to appreciate a healthy diet through daily meals such as this, rich in nutrients, proteins and vitamins necessary to their young, growing bodies. There is a great deal of love served with each meal as well!
