Healthy & Hearty

During the COVID-19 pandemic, and while we have lower enrolment, Lakeside is temporarily asking families to provide litterless packed lunches for children. The daycare is providing snacks. 

As the number of children attending our Co-op Daycare increases, we will return to providing catered hot lunches.


Below you can see a sample menu by 'Children's Choice Catering' who were our former caterers. Note that they can accommodate all allergies and food restrictions including, but not limited to, gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan.

Choice Childrenʼs Catering brings to this unique kind of food service, catering to children in child care and school settings, a wealth of experience gained over the last 20 years.

We recognize that the requirements of such a service is demanding and complex and have endeavored to address a variety of nutritional and cultural issues in the provision of these services. Accordingly, we have introduced specialized menus for each of four age groups; infants, transitional, toddlers, and preschool/school age children. As well, we have a special events calendar featuring multicultural and nutrition promotions that may be used for reference in a food education program.
