First Step Nutrition designs two-week alternating menus for us, which we change three times per year. These menus introduce the children to new, interesting, healthy food choices and are very kid friendly. The children love the meals and snacks we serve them and their parents love knowing that we offer only the best food choices. The menus also make preparation easier for us. Working with Jennifer has really improved our quality of care and is remarkably affordable.”

She was very helpful in food recommendation to improve what we offer. Her expertise provided us with information regarding what to look for in labels, how to make meals less time consuming, and more. We chose to work with Jennifer because she understood what our program strive for towards providing healthy meals to children which impacts their development. Thank you Jennifer for sharing your knowledge and helping us learn more.”
