In supporting children’s learning through mealtimes, children will receive the opportunity to self-serve their meals using appropriate utensils. During mealtimes children are furthering their learning about nutrition, as well as being provided opportunities to extend their social and language development skills.
Children will be encouraged by educators to try new foods but will never be forced. Our menu is designed to vary on a 4 weekly basis and be reflected through multiculturalism and ongoing through the children’s voice (foods they like or would like to try). Each menu will include fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads, meats, poultry and dairy.
Filtered water is provided at each meal and throughout the day for children. Please note that our centre is a nut-free centre.
Food Allergies / Intolerances
Our centre chef will take the utmost care in ensuring that children with food allergies and / or intolerances are provided with meals that will accommodate their dietary needs. If you require further information, please speak to the Centre Director.
