Our menu is carefully planned to ensure it reflects the Australian Dietary Guidelines for children. All meals are prepared and cooked fresh on the premises by our qualified chef. We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea with milk offered at meal times (except lunchtime). We cater for any food allergies and dietary restrictions adapting the meals where possible or providing alternative options. We ask parents to provide a drink bottle for their own child which is filled with water and available to children at all times.
We also cater for the individual dietary needs for younger babies. We provide pureed or mashed fruits and vegetables at the texture they are able to eat. Parents communicate with educators as new foods or fluids are introduced at home before they are offered to the child in care (this way parents can identify any allergies to new foods).
We have a private feeding area for those wishing to continue breast feeding here at the centre. Formula and bottles are supplied by the parents. Once children progress onto cows/soy milk, this is supplied by the centre.
Our chef bakes a cake to help children celebrate their birthday with their peers at the centre. This is done at afternoon tea time and parents are welcome to join their child at this time.
Due to children with allergies and specific dietary restrictions at our centre, parents are not permitted to bring in any types of food into the centre.
