EAEC’s Philosophy states, “We are committed to providing an educational program that is challenging, creative, nurturing and child-centered.” The term nurturing brings to mind a safe place where children can grow and develop their unique talents. Nurturing also means providing food. In order to reach their full potential, kids need a healthy, nurturing diet.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.   (Victor Lindlahr, Nutritionist)

This simple, yet profound, statement has been around since the mid-1800’s, and means that healthy foods lead to a healthy body and that junk foods lead to a not-so-healthy body. Junk foods are often the cause of hyperactivity in children. Hyperactivity decreases the attention span, which negatively impacts learning as well as socialization skills. (

A cornerstone of our program is providing nutritious meals and snacks so that our kids are ready to learn, to play, and to rest! Meals consist of the recommended ratio of carbohydrates to proteins to fats – 45% to 65% carbs, 20% to 30% proteins, and 35% fats. (U.S. Department of Agriculture Dietary Guidelines)

Snacks include healthy carbohydrates found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and dairy.

We discourage our parents from sending food with their children.
