Why Organic Food?
At Casa de Corazón®, we are committed to providing the best child day care possible. We know that children grow and learn best when they are full and well nourished. Therefore, we prepare natural, balanced, organic meals from fresh ingredients each and every day. We house commercial kitchens certified by local health departments to ensure that everything is up to code and properly served. Even our baby food is additive-free and pureed on site! If you are looking for a premier day care serving organic food, look no further than Casa de Corazón.
Natural and Organic FoodS
Casa de Corazón believes in the importance of providing small children with well-balanced, natural, organic and hormone-free foods. This is why we house State Department of Health-certified commercial kitchens where we prepare all foods according to the department of health’s codes and regulations. We combat the pediatric health problems that are common in our country by introducing healthy eating at each of our child care centers.
Casa de Corazón is proud to be one of the top day cares serving organic food in Minneapolis and throughout the country! We provide meals utilizing locally sourced ingredients whenever possible in order to help our environment and our community. Working with local co-ops, farms, and family-owned food vendors helps us give back to the community we live in and the planet we inhabit. We are proud of the community connections we have and are annual sponsors of our communities’ farmers markets!
