Diagonal Road Community Children’s Centre is committed to ensuring that all children, whist in care, are encouraged to follow a nutritional diet.
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.
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.
The Centre provides meals with a diverse range of foods from different cultures. Medical and religious diets are also accommodated.
We encourage families to become involved in the planning of the menus and welcome recipe ideas and any feedback regarding the menus.
Educators carry out safe food handling practices by using the Food Safe & Food Handling Training Program.
Educators will sit with children and role model positive eating and hygiene practices at meal times.
Children are encouraged to try new foods; however, their preferences are respected.
Drinks are provided with each meal and water is readily accessible during the day.
We support Mothers who need to breast feed their children at the Centre by providing a comfortable area where they can feel relaxed to feed.
