Frequently Asked Questions
What do you mean by plant-dominant and what about families that eat a lot of meat and dairy?
By taking a more vegan/vegetarian approach, we are able to focus on areas that sometimes get less attention (such as fibre and certain vitamins and minerals).
Parents can then maintain their usual dietary routine for the rest of the day (eg. dairy is common at breakfast, meat at dinner) with the peace of mind that we’re providing balance for the day.
Some of your meals will be new to some children, are you sure they’ll eat it?
Admittedly, there can be a learning curve to some of our items. We try to use familiar flavours and fun shapes to help encourage adoption, but kids may be a little hesitant at first.
But we work closely with the staff to get ongoing feedback so that we can adapt as we go. Our goal is to develop a child’s palette along the entire school year, which takes time but is a long-term benefit to the child (and parent!).
Do you offer a part-time program?
Yes, we are happy to work with you to create a schedule that meets your needs.
How large is your menu?
We typically operate on a 2-3 week rotation of dishes, consisting of a main and two sides. We feel this gives enough variety but also consistency for children.
What parts of the lower mainland due you serve?
We currently serve Vancouver, Richmond and South Surry, so are happy to discuss options no matter where you're located.
Do you offer staff meals?
Yes! In fact, we encourage it because it will only add to the children’s adoption and enjoyment if the class as a whole is taking part.
We offer a significant staff discount to the program, which you can offer as an added perk to your staff.
What if a child has a unique allergy?
Simple: the ingredient comes out of our menu entirely. As part of our value around ‘food inclusivity’ we ensure that our food can be enjoyed for one and for all!
