Besides learning about nutrition these times foster a learning opportunity for the children’s social and language development.
Children are always encouraged to try new foods but never forced. The children are encouraged to feed themselves and the educators will assist if required.
Our daily menu is displayed on the Menu Board and we provide the children with a delicious variety of nutritious meals and snacks throughout the day.
The menu is varied on a four weekly basis and accommodates multiculturalism and the likes and dislikes of the children. We include fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grain bread, meat, poultry, and dairy. Water is provided at each meal.
At NewDay Kids we are very conscious of food allergies. We take the upmost care in ensuring children with allergies are provided with meals that will accommodate their diet.
We also discourage food from being brought into the centre as many of our children have allergies which can be life threatening. For this reason, NewDay Kids Early Learning Centre is nut free.
