NUTRITION

Hallett Cove Community Children’s Centre aims to promote positive and nutritional eating habits in children.

The centre recognises that children in long day care require at least 50% of their daily-recommended dietary intake to be provided at the centre in the form of safe and appropriate food. Water is accessible at all times.

Foods provided will be consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Children and Adolescents.

Mealtimes are a pleasant occasion and children are encouraged to follow good eating habits and try a variety of foods.
