Food Program

We believe good nutrition is vital to children’s overall development and well-being. Establishing healthy eating habits at a young age sets a strong basis for sustaining a heatlhy lifestyle. To help ensure positive growth and development, Milwood Commons Learning Center participates in the Child and Adult Food Care Program (CAFCP), a food cost reimbursement program. We develop our menus around the CAFCP guidelines for nutritious meals and snacks that will contribute to the wellness, healthy growth, and development of young children.

Every summer, families will be provided with a CAFCP eligibility form. Completion of this form allows Milwood Commons Learning Center to participate in this program and continue providing quality nutrition and health practices.

Meals & Snacks

All meals and snacks are prepared by an on-staff cook.


We do our very best to accommodate any allergy. If your child has any allergy or sensitivity, it is important to inform the teacher in writing. If there are products or foods that should not be in the classroom, please indicate that as well.
