OCTOBER 12TH, 2012
SERVING UP TWO MILLION HEALTHYLICIOUS MEALS
Congratulations Food for Tots! In October we celebrated serving 2 million meals in 2012. 2012 has been a busy and productive year for Food for Tots. We have responded to changes to municipal nutritional guidelines, introduced our new healthy balance menu and onboarded the YMCA Snack Program for York and Durham regions.
New Criteria and Food Guidelines
The changes presented in the City of Toronto's Revised Nutrition Guidelines took effect on January 1, 2012. Food for Tots responded to the new operating criteria by reaching out to our customers and reviewing our menu offering to accommodate these changes. Following a thorough review of the guidelines, we were pleased to report that Food for Tots already included in our menus and practices many of the required changes. We now offer a three food group snack option for centres on our Healthy Choices Menu. As always, Food for Tots is committed to supporting our customers in receiving the highest operating criteria ranking while providing children with Healthylicious food they love.
New Healthy Balance Menu
We recognize there are many changes taking place in the field and we are committed to serving our customers with additional options for their centre or school. This Spring Food for Tots launched our new Healthy Balance menu – a simplified, affordable, and practical menu. This new menu supports nutritional guidelines while remaining healthy for children and for your budget. We continue to also offer our unique Healthy Choices menu.
Food For Tots Now Caters to YMCA of Greater Toronto
This Fall Food for Tots is pleased to announce that the YMCA has chosen us to cater to their York and Durham child care and before and after school programs! We are thrilled to support the YMCA in their vision of being home to healthiest children. It is an honour for us to bring our expertise along with our Healthylicious philosophy and work with the YMCA.
