There is clear evidence that childhood nutrition has a lasting effect on many aspects of health. Children need fresh, nutritional food and well balanced meals. The centre strives to include the recommended foods of meats, sandwiches, cheese, cold meats, fresh or dried fruit, prepared fruit snacks, savoury biscuits, fruit cake, yoghurt and milk or water.
Educators will inform parents at pick up time if their child has not eaten a usual amount at meal times.
Educators will use the enrolment form information and further updates from parents to ascertain what a usual amount of food would be for their child. Menus are displayed in the centre.
