I’m concerned about the food (variety) that my daughter is receiving at her Early Learning Center. She’s been at this daycare for a little over 4 months now and I’ve noticed that the menu is a two week rotation of the same items. Meaning one week they serve Menu A, the next week Menu B… which honestly, wouldnt be that terrible (b/c toddlers have a limit on what they’ll experience as “new” anyway) IF there weren’t items repeated from week to week. They essentially get 4 menu items that are the same but on a different day than the previous week and Fridays meal is different. Is this okay? Am I being overly judgy? I don’t want to write a letter complaining if it’s the norm. I went on KinderCare’s website and they have a 4 week menu rotation and they change that 4 week schedule twice a year to align with the season. I mean I could just bring my daughter’s food… but the tuition includes breakfast, lunch and snack and they are not going to adjust the price because I bring her food. You know? I pay for food… I want quality and variety. I started paying attention to the menu when she’d get home and be STARVING. I asked her teacher about her in-class eating habits and she was telling me that she nibbles but doesn’t eat… as do most of her classroom compadres because they “know” the menu and are tired of it. I don’t know… I don’t want to be that parent, but I don’t mind being that parent if I have to be. We pay a substantial amount and subpar service shouldn’t be a part of it.
