Healthy eating


Children need regular healthy meals, snacks and drinks! At Buttercups Childcare & Kindy we offer nutritious meals and enjoy positive mealtime experiences as we acknowledge the important role food provided in childcare plays in the growth and development of children and in the development of future eating habits. Our wonderful cook Ari plans delicious menus according to Australian dietary guidelines for children. These menus change from season to season and provide a variety of foods such as vegetables, fruits, cereals, lean meat, fish, chicken, milk, yoghurt and cheese – always keeping special dietary needs like allergies/cultural considerations in mind.


Please check out the weekly menu in our reception area!
