Several people have asked me to post a weekly menu from a French daycare center (crèche). Here’s one that I had in my files, from the fall of 2009. I picked “Week 4” at random. Note that the age ranges are given in the column on the left. So on Monday, for example, children older than 18 months would have a starter of sardine mousse, followed by chopped scalloped veal and zucchini Provençal with semolina, followed by Gouda cheese, followed by pineapple. We should all eat so well! This is the “official” menu prepared by the city of Paris, which is then debated in a committee of daycare chefs from around the city. The raw ingredients are delivered to the daycares each week, and then prepared on the premises. I can vouch for the fact that it looks quite good. “Bio” means organic. I’m making myself hungry.
