BUILDING HEALTHY HABITS

Nutrition

As part of our mission to exceed all expectations in early childhood education and care, a nutritious and healthy menu is included as part of our daily fee. We strongly believe that promoting excellent nutrition and eating habits from an early age is important to a child’s growth and development, and to their future health and attitudes towards food.

Our menu

Our menu

Your child will enjoy nutritious meals prepared by our qualified onsite chef every day. We use fresh, local ingredients, and promote a variety of different food groups, tastes, and textures in our meals. Our menu is developmentally appropriate and provides more than half of a child’s nutrition requirements.

Creating healthy habits

We aim to help children develop a healthy and positive attitude towards food and nutrition. Our Educators play an important role in this and follow strategies and activities such as:

  • Involving children in creating healthy menus
  • Encouraging children to talk about healthy food choices
  • Providing opportunities for children to enjoy food from different cultures
  • Talking with children about nutritious food during mealtimes
  • Modeling healthy eating practices for children
  • Ensuring mealtimes are pleasant and social occasions.

What if my child has special dietary needs?

Some children may have specific food requirements due to allergies/food intolerances, cultural background, or other family preferences. As part of our menu planning process we work in consultation with families to make sure each individual child’s needs are met.
