Nutrition and Health
Our service recognises the importance of healthy eating to the growth and development of young children and is committed to supporting the healthy food and drink choices of children in our care.
The service is committed to implementing the healthy eating key messages outlined in Munch & Move and to supporting the National Healthy Eating Guidelines for Early Childhood Settings as outlined in the Get Up & Grow resources.
Further, we recognise the importance of supporting families in providing healthy food and drink to their children. It is acknowledged that the early childhood setting has an important role in supporting families in healthy eating.
We ask that families provide a lunch box for their child packed with breakfast (if arriving at the Centre between 7 and 7.30am), a fruit based snack for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea and a small snack for late afternoon tea (if your child is with us after 4pm). Please pack a drink bottle that we will fill with water for use throughout the day. If you need assistance in what to pack please don’t hesitate in asking one of our team members. Milk is served with lunch and breakfast and late afternoon tea is supplied.
We also support families providing alternate foods due to special diets, religious beliefs etc. We will role model to the children the benefits of eating a balanced diet by sitting down during mealtimes and discussing eating habits and varieties of foods with the children.
We provide an extensive outdoor program with a focus on the importance of physical activity.
Our Outdoor Program focuses on healthy, active, play. Introducing the children to the natural elements of their outdoor environment. If you have a moment, take a look at our Facebook page which showcases our very famous, and very popular Combat Days which are held regularly throughout the year. The kids LOVE IT!!
Throughout the year we hold Vision Eye Sight Testing, Life Education, Pet Education and Dental Health Inscursions. We provide a Centre that is maintained to very high standards of hygiene and safety by following guidelines set by the NSW Health (www.health.nsw.gov.au) in conjunction with South West Area Health Service.
