nutrition

We understand the important role we play in meeting the nutritional needs of children while in care. Children who attend a full day of long day care will be offered at least 50% of their recommended daily dietary intake while in care.

We also have a commitment to assist families, who provide their children’s meals to develop healthy food attitudes and habits. Guidelines around healthy eating when food is supplied at the service or when families provide the food can be found in the foyer or by asking a friendly team member.

A Healthy Future

Little Scholars Sample Menu

The key to a successful life is building a healthy one! At Little Scholars we are committed to providing the best start for all our children.

We have specifically designed a delicious and groundbreaking menu for all Little Scholars children to enjoy each day.

Little Scholars provides five meals for children                                        in the course of regular day from 6am – 6pm:

  • Breakfast
  • Morning Tea
  • Lunch
  • Afternoon Tea
  • Late Snack

Created as a  6 week rotating menu to offer variety and balance, our menu has been developed to meet 50% of the individual dietary needs of children as advised by ‘Australian Dietary Guidelines, an Australian guide to healthy eating, Get Up & Grow: Healthy Eating and Physical Activity for Early Childhood’ and the National Quality Framework (NQF).
