If Kid's Country really wants to help.....
Let's see, maybe they should try eliminating the high-fat, high sugar, and ultra-high carb slop they feed the kids in their charge. The "food" at Kid's Country is something the proprietors should hang their heads in shame about.

Don't be fooled by kids country and their deceptive ways of advertising good activities. They are a group (profit seeking-sham of non profit status)motivated by making money at the hands of your kids. Srvusd makes deals with them which unfair to better groups and individuals more suitable for the job.

The snacks at KC are healthy. Usually a fruit and a carb. Apples, pineapple, hummus, pita chips, peaches, pears, string cheese, spegetti, quesadillas, the list goes on. There's a real desire to go all organic, but it's very expensive.

My child was in Kids Country all thru elementary school, and it was fantastic! Great teachers and staff, well run, and they really cared about the kids and did a wonderful job. We were very lucky to have this program in our schools.

Kids' Country has recently hired a nutritionist consultant to review and improve the snack menus. Since, the snacks have been greatly improved and do include such items like hummus, pears, etc. If you have any concerns about the menus please feel free to contact the KC administration and we will be more than happy to assist your needs.

I agree with Todd C and Derek.Kids Country is a sham and all the profit is distributed between the top 2 bosses. They keep on raising the fees and pocket the profit. The food in Coyote Creek where my kids went is most of the time crackers and cheese. The staff is too lazy to cook for our kids and most of the time my kids came home hungry. What they post on their snack calenders are never given...It is a total eye wash! They involve kids once in a while in these kinds of activities so that they can get more enrollment...MORE MONEY in their top bosses pockets!

Obesity is not going to help if kids country gives, crackers, salami, cheese and canned fruit thickened with syrup all the time. I guess it is quick and easy and fattening. If you complain, their is no one to listen to you. The directors behave like CEO's of multi billion dollar companies. Coming from another school district, the kids at KC are only given paper and crayons and left to non interested staff who just sits around looking bored, whereas at other districts, the kids are actually given "enriched classes". Kids country is all "talk" and no "walk".
