At Harbourside Children's Centre, we aim to promote the development of healthy food habits while providing nutritious breakfasts, lunches, and afternoon snacks.

We believe:

  • Eating is a sensory, social, and learned behaviour
  • Eating should take place in a pleasant, home-like environment
  • Positive and healthy nutrition encourages good nutritional attitudes to last

Harbourside Children's Centre has a wonderful chef who prepares our scrumptious breakfasts, our tasty lunches, and our delicious afternoon snacks!

Milk is provided for breakfast and lunch, and filtered water is always available at all times during the day. Our menus rotate on a 10 week basis with a new recipe on the menu every week. Parents will receive a copy of the menu in advance to the corresponding week. We aim to be as accomodating as possible to a children's food allergies, restrictions, and special diet. We believe in working with families to ensure that the children have a healthy and satisfying meal despite their food requirements.

Please note that we do not serve pork or pork by-products at the centre. We serve tuna on the menu only once a month. All of our meals meet the requirements for a nutritional balanced diet and are approved by Vancouver Coastal Health.
