AND
NUTRITION

Diagonal Road Community Children’s Centre is committed to ensuring that all children, whist in care, are encouraged to follow a nutritional diet.

NUTRITION

The Centre aims to offer food, which is low in fat, salt, sugar and provide a moderate level of fibre. Most dairy products provided are the full cream variety.

We strive to provide food with a variety in colour, taste and texture.

MENU

The menu will be planned by our qualified Chef to incorporate a variety of foods from the 5 food groups recommended by the Australian Dietary Guidelines.

The complete menu will provide at least 50% of the recommended daily intake.
