Healthy Eating

All the meals are prepared on site by our cook.  The cook creates specific child friendly and seasonal menus that compliment cultures and flavours of the world.  Children’s individual needs are met with all allergy, religious and parental preferences taken into account.

Monash Children’s Centre has been awarded as a “Smiles for Miles” service by Dental Health Services Victoria.  Teachers incorporate the messages and steps into the everyday program for the children.  The key messages of the program are:

  • Drink Well – tap water and unflavoured milk is offered at the centre throughout the day
  • Eat Well – a variety of nutritious well balanced lunches are offered to children, with fruit and healthy snacks offered between meals
  • Clean Well – encouraging children to brush their teeth at home twice a day, and complete their meals at the centre with a swish and swallow of water
