Children are served both breakfast and lunch in school along with an afternoon snack which meets two-thirds of their daily dietary requirements. All food is prepared on site and meets USDA standards.

Bristol Preschool Child Care Center is one of four centers in Connecticut participating in an important study to improve children’s nutrition and physical activity between 2008 and 2010. Yale University School of Nursing has been awarded a grant to teach child care teachers and parents how to improve nutrition and physical activity in centers and at home. The goal is to prevent childhood obesity and other related health problems.
