Weeknight & Weekend Menus for Childcare and Home
(includes weekday afternoon snack and dinner and full weekend meals)
These monthly afterschool menus are set up using the daily grains specified by Rudolph Steiner and widely used in Waldorf Kindergartens and homes the world over. We have included many recipes that are easily doubled or tripled so that you can serve homemade wholesome foods every day without having to spend all day in the kitchen. This seasonal menu is filled with recipes using widely available and affordable seasonal produce. All the recipes include reommendations to make dishes suitable for families who are sensitive to gluten or dairy and to vegetarians.
This menu provides recipes for a daily afterschool snack, dinner and several nutritious weekday desserts. It also provides a full menu for the weekends, including breakfast and more decadent desserts. This menu was complied by a nutritionist and it is parent and kid tested!
The recipes invite story telling, either while preparing, serving or at the table. These afterschool menus include a full week of recipes that are meant to be rotated throughout the season. This is done to create a predictable rhythm to mealtime in the home that the children and caregiver can depend upon each day, warming the child both spiritually and physically throughout the season.
Be sure to also check out our School Daytime Menus which provide meals for daily breakfast lunch and snacks.
