Sample Daycare Menu

pancakes with strawberries meatballs and noodles snickerdoodle cookies


Would a sample daycare menu make your job as a daycare provider a lot easier? Here you will find six weeks of kid-friendly menus with recipes provided. That makes meal planning very easy.

You are also provided with a shopping list. This ensures that you have everything you need for the week. No extra runs to the grocery store for you!

Can you get any easier than this?



These menus are set up to pass the criteria of the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Child and Adult Care Food Program regulations.

These menus are also set up to make your job as a daycare provider as easy as possible. For the days the menu requires cooking or baking for breakfast, the lunch is easy to prepare. If the lunch that is scheduled requires preparation, then the breakfast is easy that day.
