Our Childcare Meals

In addition every Wednesday parents have the opportunity to order a nutritional family meal lovingly prepared by our experienced chef. Simply check the Centre’s notices for the week’s three family meal choices and pre-order your nutritional family meal to collect that evening to save you cooking.

We help guide your child towards good food habits which will help them maintain a healthy weight and good health long term.

Our menus are designed in conjunction with nutritionists to include nutrient-dense meals created with only the freshest ingredients, specifically selected for growing bodies.They also take into account the cultural backgrounds and special dietary requirements and needs of all the children attending the centre.

At Bowen Hills Early Learning:

  • We employ a qualified cook to prepare fresh daily meals taking into account cultural backgrounds and special dietary requirements of all children at the centre.
  • We have specialised summer and winter menus to maximise seasonal produce and provide variety to our children. All menus are evaluated frequently by our cook, staff and parents to ensure all meals provided are appropriate and delicious for all children.
  • Healthy snacks are provided throughout the day for all children.

We also integrate food education into our other learning activities, such as showing the kids how to grow and eat their own vegetables. These hands-on nutrition activities help children develop healthy eating habits and can complement other learning, for example math, science, language, social development, cooperation, and respect for culture.

Teaching children to eat wisely and moderately is an investment in the future, and establishing healthy eating habits in the early years is not only important, but can also be fun.
