Lunch and Snack

Healthy bodies = Healthy minds

The Peninsula Academy serves two snacks and a hot lunch daily to each child. The menu, just like every other detail at TPA, is very intentional. Great time has been spent formulating a menu that is nutritious yet yummy for a preschooler. TPA strives to limit any foods containing trans fats, sugars and white flour.  Whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables are all staples on the menu. TPA has a vegetable garden the children tend to each summer. The fresh vegetables are used in TPA’s restaurant-grade kitchen to provide nutritious snacks and lunches. The Preschool and Pre-K children participate in cooking classes. In doing so, the children learn important math skills such as measurement and quantities, while also learning to prepare healthy meals. Healthy bodies produce healthy minds.
