The feeding team at Blue Bird Day is experienced in providing therapeutic interventions to children with dietary restrictions, feeding tubes, allergies or food intolerance. The nut-free facility prepares USDA recommended serving sizes for preschoolers and kindergartners. Menus are free of peanuts, tree nuts, gluten, dairy, and sesame to encourage participation in family style meals for children with dietary restrictions.
If there are additional allergies or dietary restrictions outside of Green Monkey protocols, Blue Bird Day is happy to accommodate. Separate meals with specific requests for lunch alternatives can be made. The meal will be checked daily by the Registered Dietitian upon arrival to ensure cross-contamination does not occur.
The expert feeding team is trained in a variety of approaches to target the individualized needs of any child with challenges in feeding. Blue Bird Day keeps Epi-Pens on-site and close to the treatment rooms if needed.
