Crawmer's Provides all Meals and Snacks
Did you know that it cost nearly $12 per day to pack breakfast, lunch and two snacks for your child if you have to provide these meals for your student daily? These prepackaged foods contain food colorings, MSG, and other preservatives that are being consumed by our kids; as well as being high in sugars like high fructose corn syrup. This is definitely not any parents idea of a well rounded meal.
However, if you have a student that attends Crawmer's full time your average monthly savings is $264 per month, just from NOT packing foods to school! When was the last time you were able to send a hot, home made meal to school with your student? No more getting up early or staying up late to pack food for school. No more forgotten lunches where you race across town to deliver food to your hungry student, or worries about the lunch spoiling due to lack of refrigeration.
Here at Crawmer's Critterz we provide ONLY USDA select foods—Organic and natural selections. Crawmer's Critterz is a USDA food program participant. We believe that nutrition provided without additives, chemicals and coloring will benefit your child as they grow and strive to be the best they can be! Meals that are made from whole foods, not pre made, or frozen, provide our students with extra nutrition that students with packed meals just miss out on. We pride ourselves on cooking tasty meals from scratch that our kids just love.
Balanced meals are very important to us. With out the proper nourishment a child can develop weak bones, joints and muscles. As your child grows, his or her brain is developing and the proper nourishment keeps your child alert and awake to learn through out the whole day while giving energy and vigor. With properly balanced meals their day doesn’t end in a sugar “crash” leading to behavioral issues at home and school.
Our on site Chef prepares meals and goodies from scratch. From our amazing berry scones and pumpkin muffins she bakes all kinds of goodies that are low in processed sugars but high in taste and flavor. Our lunches consist of things like baked white Macaroni & Cheese or Chicken Noodle soup with hand cut veggies and handmade noodles, your child is sure to love the weekly menu.
From our organic whole grain breads and brown rice to our home grown garden and store bought organic produce, we take great pride in serving the best tasting (and sounding) foods to our students and staff. Everything served is restaurant grade—quality and taste. You won’t find any chicken nuggets on our tables, only the best tasting whole foods served up tasty, warm and beautifully apportioned. Students here can eat as much food as their growing bodies desire, equaling happy and healthy students.
Vegan meals and food allergies are not an issue at Crawmer's. We specialize in working with children with wheat & gluten, dairy, soy, corn as well as food coloring allergies. If food allergies are a concern for you, or your child has a food allergy, please let us know at the interview process so we can discuss this at length with you all the options we have available. Food allergies should not be a barrier or make young students feel left out. We have a culinary artist that carefully thinks out all of our meals and snacks, as she has food allergies herself.
For our infants, only the choosiest of foods are “hand milled” for our little ones to savor the best nutrients for growing young, healthy bodies.
