Highgate Early Learning Centre ensures that all meals provided and offered to the children form a balanced eating plan while being varied and nutritious.
The meals are prepared fresh on a daily basis on our premises by our chef who uses fresh ingredients delivered to the centre by a number of local and community suppliers. There is a six week rotating menu. The menu is emailed to families each week and a copy is displayed outside the kitchen.
Highgate also ensures that the food provided is culturally diverse and one that encourages and develops children’s taste by using a variety of herbs and spices, some of which are grown in our garden by the children. We welcome feedback on our menu and also invite new recipes that families find their children enjoy to add to our menu.
Food provided during the day includes breakfast, morning and afternoon tea, lunch and late snack. Provisions are made for individual children with dietary restrictions and allergies.
