Nutrition

Promotion of good nutrition and healthy eating habits will assist a child’s development now and into the future.

 

Little Babes Early Learning prepares their own meals on-site each day, using the freshest of ingredients. We provide breakfast for the early starters, morning and afternoon tea, and hot lunches.

 

Our age-appropriate, balanced menus are as delicious as they are nutritional, incorporating a wide range of fruit and vegetables and focusing on meals with low GI complex carbohydrates, low added sugar and unsaturated fats.

 

Our qualified staff ensure that dietary requirements are met, including those for children with allergies, those who are vegetarian or have other special requirements. Our premises and procedures strictly comply with all food safety regulations and are nut-free.

 

We also understand that meal-times are about more than just food. When children gather together to eat and drink, an opportunity for social and language development exists along with the support of self-help and hygiene skills.

 

It is also the chance to try new things and experience new tastes and textures. Menus are regularly rotated to ensure variety.
