Your Place Early Learning Centre promotes healthy lifestyles, good nutrition and the wellbeing of all children, educators/staff and families.
Healthy eating activities are embedded into our curriculum, e.g. planting, growing, picking vegetables and cooking with healthy foods.
Nutritious and delicious meals are prepared daily by our Chef using food from all five food groups offering a diverse range of delicious flavours to encourage good, healthy eating habits for the future.
Menus are designed in line with the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating and the Australian Dietary Guidelines.
All meals incorporate the highest quality ingredients, are appealing, healthy and fun. Where possible we will source local, spray free, organic ingredients and limit artificial colours, flavours, preservatives and sugar.
Our menus introduce children to a world of flavours, colours and textures from various cultures, encouraging children to make healthy food choices.
Preparation of food and correct food handling techniques is paramount.
All our meals are prepared to the highest standard of hygiene. Our food practices and thorough care and attention offer the highest possible level of food safety and quality assurance.
