Healthy eating is the cornerstone of our program. Children do not get nearly enough nutrition education in school, so we strive to promote healthy eating habits and good eating choices. Children have to try a food up to 10 times before they learn to like it. We cook only healthy, nutritious foods and don’t serve ‘junk’ food or sugary foods as nutrition is an extremely important part of a young person’s development.
We bake and cook with the kids present and they participate whenever they can do so safely so that they can understand how food is prepared and nourishes our bodies, and we garden in the summer.
Aunty’s Childcare participates in a federally funded food program and am required to serve nutritious, well balanced meals and snacks. Please do not send alternative food with your child unless they have food allergies or are on a special diet. If your child requires special food, please label it with your child’s name and the date. A weekly meal calendar is posted on the wall in the kitchen.
