Introducing Kindy Kitchen

Childcare Centres of Excellence provides the highest-quality food and nutrition experience for our families. Our dedicated team work together to ensure every child receives the nourishment and hydration they need to thrive. 

Our Food Philosophy We serve to nourish the children in our care by preparing fresh, nutrient-rich food, providing an educational and supportive eating environment and are committed to ongoing training and development.

Our Seasonal Menu -The menu is designed by our resident nutritionist and is updated every 6 weeks in conjunction with the seasons. Our program offers 4 meals per day, always incorporating a healthy balance of wholesome carbohydrates, quality protein and good fats. Each meal comes with a rainbow of fresh food options for the children to self-select with the help of our educators. We base our practices on the ACECQA National Quality Framework and the latest Nutrition research and recommendations. We offer flexibility to our menu, catering to allergies or to suit the preferences of our families.

Meal Preparation – The Kindy Kitchen team sources wholesome, quality ingredients in line with our Food Safety and Nutrition Policy and prepare all meals fresh daily. Our chefs use real food principles and cook from scratch using traditional methods to ensure the children are getting the most nutrient-dense food possible. As per the FSANZ recommendations, potentially high-risk foods are not included in the menu.
