In the kitchen with with Sesame Lane

At Sesame Lane we provide a 4 week rotating menu for summer and winter. For our big kids, our morning tea consists of a seasonal fruit platter served with milk and water, Lunch is either a hot meal off the menu or an assortment of delicious sandwiches. Afternoon tea varies each day; however our slices, muffins, scones or oat bars are made fresh on the premises and served with a rainbow medley of vegetable sticks each day.

When it comes to our babies, we alter the menu slightly to suit, the staff work closely with the families during the babies first food journeys.  All fresh fruit and vegetables are sourced from local suppliers and prepared fresh on site. We begin with a “first foo” which is typically pumpkin or sweet potato. We slowly introduce vegetables individually to ensure that there are no reactions to the food.

We will then graduate to a mixed vegetable recipe then begin to introduce different meats or legumes and rice or pasta and cheese, all in consultation with the parents or caregivers. We also provide full fat yoghurt and our cooks prepare homemade teething rusks made from wholemeal bread.

Because all of our meals are prepared fresh daily, we can cater to your child’s needs and allergies with ease. We can offer vegetarian, vegan, cultural requests, egg free, nut free and some gluten free meals.
Our Happy Healthy Learners love everything about the kitchen from growing the food to preparing their meals and of course eating them. We educate our children through stories, group discussions, gardening and growing our own fruit and vegetables and through cooking experiences. The children love participating in watering, weeding, harvesting, washing, peeling, chopping, weighing, preparing, cooking and eating the yummy food that they have nurtured, grown and prepared.
