Food and Nutrition

 

All the children’s meals are cooked on the premises by our Cook Sue – these meals cover the daily nutritional needs of your child while at the Centre. We work on a four weekly meal planner – this is displayed in the dinning room and foyer. 

All meals are dispalyed in the foyer and dining room for you to view

On Tuesday’s we have lunch box day for all the tamariki (children) where they bring their  own lunch box and learn the healthy options for lunch box food.

All our meals are freshly prepared and we provide fresh fruit and vegetables.
