Snacks and Meals
Meal Selection From the Hospital Menu
Our Room Service Program has been specially designed to offer you and your child an extraordinary hospital experience. GSH offers special meals to meet your child’s needs. Please Call DINE (EXT. 3463) to place your room service order. If calling outside the hospital or using your cell phone, please dial (631) 376-3463. Our Call center is open between the hours of 7:00 am-7:00 pm. Please ask your Nurse for a copy of our Pediatric Menu.
Eating and Drinking Play an Important Role in Helping Your Child to Heal
Your nurse needs to know the amount your child drinks. Please tell her when she asks.
Please tell us about any food allergies and/or any special needs your child may have.
It may be fine for you to bring your child food from home or other places, but please check with your nurse first.
Please never offer food or snacks to other children hospitalized on the unit.
If your child is waiting for a test or procedure they may be “NPO”(nothing pre-operatively). Please do not give your child anything to eat or drink unless your nurse says it is okay.
We serve coffee and danish for parents every morning in the parent lounge.
The Captree Café, located in the lobby of the hospital, is open daily from 6:30 am – 8:00 pm for parents and visitors.
