St. Anne's Kitchen
As early learning professionals we are committed to providing the highest level of care for all of the children we serve. Nutrition and healthy eating practices play a critical role in children’s health and well-being. At St. Anne’s we follow consistent, healthy eating practices that support children in developing healthy eating habits and create an environment that promotes healthy behaviors.
We offer a wide variety of healthy foods, strive to provide the highest quality products, and offer fresh seasonal foods when available. When offered a variety of nutritious foods, children instinctively choose a balanced diet. St. Anne’s food policies are based on best practices identified through the facility’s participation in the Eastern Washington Start Healthy Start Now program, public health research, national health recommendations, and the mission and philosophy of St. Anne’s Children and Family Center.
We participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program and have earned the following OSPI Child Nutrition Services Awards:
Gold Award Winner in Innovative Menu
Gold Award Winner in Nutrition Education
Gold Award Winner in Farm to Program
