Nutrition and Food
The staff at Pearsall Child Care Centre acknowledge the importance of childhood nutrition to grow and to current and future health and development.
We provide meals in a safe and caring environment, which meets the children’s individual nutritional requirements.
We promote healthy food choices to parents/guardians, staff and children.
Our nutrition policy is based on the principle that meal times are excellent opportunities for providing children with a caring, safe and supportive environment in which to encourage and enjoy safe and healthy eating habits.
Our menus are based on the dietary guidelines for children and adolescents and in line with the get up and grow manual and its guidelines.
Pearsall Child Care Centre has a permanent food coordinator who freshly prepares and cooks meals on the premises.
We offer 3 meals a day; morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. We also offer a late snack.
The full version of this policy and its procedures can be viewed and discussed with management upon orientation of the service.
