Our Healthy Heart Menu

We believe in strong partnerships between your centre and your home, and so our philosophies run right through all our planning, activities, learning and even our meals. We have a rotating menu (sample shown). This has been carefully designed by our centre chefs, who are experts in preparation and cooking techniques and who continuously research new ways to keep meals interesting and nutritious for children. Vegetarian and Halal and any special dietary needs are catered for too.

Our sample 4 week menu plan has made it easy for parents to plan their own evening meals since they know what their child will be eating at the Centre during the day.

Our meals are so popular with children that we have even published our very own 60+ page “WHAT YOUR KIDS LOVE TO EAT – COOKBOOK”.

Our Nutrition Policy, Food Health and Safety Policy, & Hygiene Policy, (available for viewing at the centre) also ensure a robust system of precautions for all preparation, cooking, & eating practices, as well as allergies and dietary requirements that children may have.
