Menu Reviews

Child care centres located in Wellington and Dufferin Counties and the City of Guelph can have their menus reviewed at no cost by a registered dietitian (RD) at Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health. 

Menus will only be reviewed in January, February, September and October. You can expect a response to your menu review submission within three weeks if all forms and information are correctly submitted.

If you require review of your menu outside of these months you can contact a private practice dietitian who can review your menu at any time for a fee. To find a private practice dietitian go to Dietitians.ca and click on “Find a Dietitian”.

As of January 2018 the information in the Menu Planning & Supportive Nutrition Environments in Child Care Settings Practical Guide will be used by the dietitian to assess whether the quality of your menu meets the food and drink requirements of the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014.
