The BrightPath Difference
Nutrition is essential to fuel optimal growth and development in order for kids to reach their full potential. BrightPath has partnered with a Registered Dietitian to ensure that all meals and snacks on our menu meet the highest nutritional value.
Our lunches and snacks are made from scratch, using fresh ingredients sourced locally whenever possible. Our menu rotates on a four-week basis and is modified seasonally to offer variety and balance. Our guidelines reduce the intake of sugar and salt as we believe that food choices during childhood lay the foundation for lifelong eating habits into adolescence and adulthood.
All BrightPath centres are completely nut-free and we work with families with children that have other food sensitivities and allergies to ensure the safety and well being of the children in our centres.
If your child requires a special diet for cultural or medical reasons, we will do our best to accommodate and work with our families.
