meals

At One Plus One ELC we provide a nutritionally balanced 4 week rotation menu to meet the significant amount of children's daily vitamins and nutritional requirements. All meals are cooked and prepared onsite by a qualified chef specially trained in child nutrition, using only quality ingredients such as lean meat, fish, chicken, vegetables, fruit, cereal, milk, yoghurt and cheese.

Breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and late snack are all provided for the children to enjoy. Children are encouraged to drink water frequently throughout the day to keep well hydrated. This is done through frequent water breaks with educators indoors as well as minute reminders whilst outside and every 30 minutes break for a little bit in the shade to make sure the children stay hydrated.

The weekly menu will be on display for parents to view. Please speak to our cook or any educators if you would like to contribute to the menu. We greatly appreciate family recipes and will incorporate these into our menu where ever possible.

Mealtimes are one of the many learning experiences for children. Children will have a relaxing conversation with their friends and educators during mealtimes. At One Plus One ELC we promote positive social behaviour and independence by encouraging children to be involved in setting up the table and serving their own food.
