What is included in our Monarch Meals Program?

The Monarch Center for Child Development has partnered with The Oxford Center to provide Breakfast, Lunch and Snack for the kids each week, if their parents choose to have them participate. 

 Food is the fuel for learning! To help ensure that your child is receiving the proper nutrition they need, as well as to make life easier for you, The Oxford Center is offering a Monarch Meals program which provides prepared meals for your little ones! The prepared meals are healthy and kid-friendly and are all made using gluten-free ingredients; dairy-free meals are optional based on individual allergy and dietary restrictions.

The food program includes breakfast, a main meal along with fresh fruits and veggies, and a snack. The menu items cycle to introduce different textures, shapes, and tastes to help with food toleration and exploration. Our goal is to introduce your child to nutritious foods, without compromising on fun!

To sign up for or to continue the meal program, please fill out the lunch form on the Friday before or on the first day of the week your child attends. The lunch forms will be emailed weekly with the menu, or you may pick one up when you sign your child out.

It is important to consult with a doctor before making changes to your child’s diet. Our medical team is familiar with unique diets and would love to help tailor your child’s meals.
