Kids Planet ensures that all children are provided with a varied and nutritious diet. In each of our nurseries we have a 4 or 6 weekly menu which incorporates food from other cultures and provides themed days linked to international holidays and celebrations.
We provide nutritious food during all our meal and snack times ensuring we include foods from the four main food groups.
All our food is made fresh on the premises and fresh fruit is always available everyday.
In each Kids Planet nursery, our Nursery Chef works with the staff and children to provide a wide range of cooking activities. Each Nursery Chef encourages the children to experience a variety of baking and cooking methods, introducing new foods and ingredients to the children.
Our daily routines include the following:
|Breakfast between the times of:||7.00am – 8.30am|
|Morning snack at:||9.30am|
|Lunch between the times of:||11.30am – 11.45am|
|Afternoon tea between the times of:||3.30pm – 4.00pm|
Meal and snack times are seen as social occasions for our staff and children.
Staff are encouraged to eat with the children at meal times promoting positive eating practises that we hope will continue throughout our children’s lives.
