Share your menu ideas, suggestions and what works best for you in your centre.
Child care centre menus plan for the provision of nutritious meals and snacks necessary for the optimum health and growth of the young children in their care. Creative and appealing menus can also contribute towards the acceptance of a variety of new foods and lifelong healthy eating habits.
Menus must also balance the needs and wants of the children in their care; the expectations of the parents; the limitations of centre space, time and budgets; and the complex details of government regulations and policies.
