Passing Bowls Family –Style Teaches Children to Respond to Hunger Cues
Family Style Dining helps children learn about portion size and food preference. When foods are pre-plated, children never develop the ability to read their body’s cues. At the Citi Family Center the children eat Family Style starting in the toddler classes.
Children toddlers and up eat family styles for all meals. The center serves healthy meals for breakfast, lunch, snack and supper. Our menus are over 80% fresh fruits and vegetables. We take pride in intoducing the childen to new foods from diverse backgrounds.
Mealtimes are also a learning experience. The children have the opportunity to socialize while using their manner and other skills.
