Food Program

Our Centre provides a nutritionally balanced morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea for your little ones. Our lunch meals are supplied by our food partner, Kids Gourmet Food (KGF).

Kids Goutmet Food provide fresh, nutritious, homestyle meals by qualified chefs and have been refining and fine tuning there menus since 2002.

The early years in a child’s life are instrumental in developing positive, long-term eating habits. Exposing young children to a healthy, diverse diet not only gives them the best start in life, it helps secure their future health, development and wellbeing as they grow up.

KFG uses high-quality, fresh ingredients and a broad range of flavours and textures to create meals that meet – and often exceed – the latest nutritional guidelines for children in care. It does this by working with nutritionists and dieticians and consulting with national advisory groups to ensure the highest nutritional standards. In our six-week rotational menu, your children’s meals contain food from the five food groups recommended by the Australian Dietary Guidelines.

Our healthy and balanced meals include a variety of:

  • Fresh vegetables and legumes
  • Seasonal fruit
  • Wholegrains and seeds
  • Lean fresh meat and fish
  • Dairy options

Our  menus also offer a wide selection of fresh fruit and raw vegetables with morning and afternoon tea, as well as steamed, fresh vegetables at lunchtime.

Encouraging a love of food

When children are growing up, mealtimes are not solely about nutrition. They’re a time to explore a world of new flavours and textures and to enjoy a positive and sociable eating experience that will encourage them to make their own healthy choices when they’re older. We are truly passionate about passing on our own love of food by offering a diverse and creative menu that captures children’s interest. We also promote an environment where mealtimes are one of the most important parts of the day.
