Providence Preparatory School believes in the value of good nutrition.

Preschool nutritional lunches are essential for the overall growth and development of young children. During the early years, children’s bodies and brains are developing rapidly, and proper nutrition is critical to support this process.

Our nutritional lunches provide children with a balanced and healthy meal that includes essential nutrients such as protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. These nutrients are essential for healthy growth and development, including building strong bones and muscles, maintaining healthy skin, and boosting the immune system.

In addition to physical benefits, preschool nutritional lunches can also have a positive impact on children’s cognitive development. Studies have shown that a healthy and balanced diet can improve concentration, memory, and overall academic performance.

Furthermore, preschool nutritional lunches can also promote healthy eating habits and a positive relationship with food. By exposing children to a variety of healthy foods and encouraging them to try new things, preschool nutritional lunches can help establish lifelong healthy eating habits and prevent childhood obesity and related health problems.

In summary, preschool nutritional lunches are crucial for supporting the health and development of young children and promoting healthy habits that can last a lifetime.

Providence Preparatory School is committed to healthy choices for your child.

    Water Initiative

    Children will be given filtered water throughout the day in place of juice and other sugar-containing beverages. Each child is provided with their own water bottle that is filled and refilled from the “Hydration Stations” in their classrooms.

Lifetime eating habits are formed during a child’s earliest years. Along with our families, we greatly influence each child’s nutritional preferences by providing many of the children’s daily meals.

Child Nutrition

Our chefs prepare breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack using a combination of fresh, locally grown whole foods (subject to seasonal availability), fruits, vegetables and herbs.  

Our chefs use ingredients that are healthy, rich in nutrients, low in fat and sodium and high in protein. The children are served organic milk (subject to market place availability), whole wheat breads, fruit served fresh (subject to seasonal availability), lean meats and low sugar snacks.

Kids Meals


As a part of our Family Engagement initiative, we offer a delicious, nutritious “Meal To Go” to our families, quarterly.  We showcase the Chef’s talents and the children’s favorite foods. This provides a simple way for the family to sit together and enjoy one of PPS’ favorite meals.

Our meals and snacks exceed the requirements for Meal Patterns as defined by the USDA.

** Children with allergies and special dietary restrictions will be given substitute foods with equivalent nutritional content.
