Healthy Kids Program

Committed To Providing Quality Nutritious Food For Your Children

It is our priority to discuss nutritional and dietary requirements with each family throughout their enrolment, to ensure our meals are catering to your child’s individual needs. It is important to us that your child has healthy, nutritious meals to give their bodies all the nutrients they need to grow and develop and reach their physical potential.  Our aim is to educate children on health, nutrition, good food choices and a balanced diet so they can use this knowledge as a lifelong skill.

Healthy Food Everyday

Our Qualified Chef is dedicated to writing and preparing our healthy, nutritious menu. Our menu is designed using the Children and Adolescent Nutrition Guidelines of Australia, as recommended by The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). We provide; Breakfast, Morning Tea, Lunch Afternoon Tea and a little late snack.

Dietary Requirements

Our chef caters for all dietary requirements such as age appropriate meals, cultural and dietary food requirements. We work in partnership with families upon enrolment and throughout your child’s enrolment with us to ensure our menus are catering to your child’s individual needs.

Little Ones

For our younger babies we ask families to provide breast milk or formula. If your child has transitioned on to milk, the centre will provide this for you. We are a strong advocate for supporting and encouraging breastfeeding mothers and our Nursery classroom easily accommodates this.
