Healthy & Nutritious Meals
At Smart Start we provide healthy and nutritious home cooked meals that include all the food groups necessary for a healthy diet. We believe that this is essential for growing minds and bodies and helps with children’s development and learning. The children are actively involved in helping to prepare the meals and also take pride in growing their own produce for our menu in our Centre gardens.
Smart Start follows the guidelines provided by the New Zealand Healthy Heart Foundation on encouraging physical health through exercise and nutrition in an early childhood setting.
As a busy parent, you don’t have to prepare lunchboxes everyday, or worry too much about what you serve for dinner, as you can rest assured that after a day at Smart Start, your children have had all their nutritional requirements. Nutrition is the key to help your child make the best possible start in life.
All meals in our seasonal rotational menu are prepared onsite daily by our chef. Weekly menus are displayed on our Parent Noticeboard.
We support all individual children’s dietary requirements.
