Nutrition

Offering children FIVE meals a day, our kitchen is fully equipped to allow our talented cook to deliver healthy and nutritious meals every day. Our rotating seasonal menu is prepared on-site by our professional cook, who uses the finest, fresh seasonal and local ingredients. We use only the freshest produce to ensure the nutritional value, safety, flavour and quality of all the meals we serve.

Our menu has been carefully designed with the help of our families and children, the menu has then been approved through Nutrition Australia. It will tempt even the fussiest of eaters and our generous servings ensure full and satisfied tummies. Milk (and water) is offered with all meals to ensure growing bones are receiving their recommended intake of calcium.

Modified meals are available for infants, based on current needs (pureed, textured, etc.) and allergies, intolerances or dietary restrictions are easily catered for.

As a registered (Class 1) childcare kitchen with local council, strict food safety and preparation policies are implemented including the requirement to conduct annual audits and participate in routine random inspections and food testing. Our cook is trained in Food Safety Preparation and participates in regular professional development and local network meetings to ensure best-practice standards are met and maintained.

Children will be offered the following on a daily basis:

  • Breakfast
  • Morning tea
  • Lunch
  • After tea
  • Late afternoon snack
