Nutrition

Our menu is situated above the sign in out desk, it is reviewed daily and organised every 3 weeks

We provide a variety of healthy choices and endeavour to meet individual dietary requirements, seasonal, cultural and children's tastes. The children are regularly consulted in regards to suggestions of foods and healthy nutritional education is incorporated into the program.

Considerations are in place in regards to cultural differences/religion/allergies/health  nutrition and food preparation. Cooking activities are often led by the children, recipes provided by families and then incorporated into the menu especially for 5pm snacks. Breakfast where possible is prepared by educators and the children and encouragement to participate in this relaxed social time is supported.

Our Centre provides a menu where possible that is consistent with the latest dietary guidelines “Australian Dietary Guidelines” released in 2013.

The Australian Dietary Guidelines use the best available scientific evidence to provide information on the types and amounts of foods, food groups and dietary patterns that aim to:

  • promote health and wellbeing
  • reduce the risk of diet-related conditions
  • reduce the risk of chronic disease.
