Greenacres Learning Center

a place to learn, grow and discover

Greenacres provides a variety of healthy meals and snacks
  • Meals and snacks include meat and meat alternatives, bread, grains, fruits, vegetables and fluid milk.
  • Meals and snacks include carbohydrates, proteins and fat to give children energy, while maintaining total calories within recommended ranges specific to a child’s age group and level of activity.
  • Meals and snacks have limited added sugar and sodium and increased dietary fiber.
  • On average over a school week we aim to not exceed 35 percent of total calories from fat, 10 percent calories from saturated fat and minimal grams trans-fat.

Allergens & Adaptations
  • If your child has a special nutritional need or requires an adaptation to our menu, we will work with your family to create a plan that adequately meets your child’s needs.
  • We will always work with you and your family to provide the best substitute if your child has a known allergy or nutrition need.
