Healthy eating and your child: the start of a beautiful relationship

The concept of healthy eating is introduced early and embedded in our culture. Away from the table, children are given many opportunities to explore their relationship with food. This includes growing veggies & herbs in our gardens and being involved in cooking experiences.
Throughout the day, your child will be offered food from all the essential food groups. Vegetables and fruit feature heavily and typical protein sources include sausages, beef mince, diced chicken, pork, kidney beans, baked beans, tuna, lunch meats and eggs, plus cheese and yoghurt for their daily dose of dairyAll meals and snacks are freshly prepared by trained cooks in our Service Kitchens using locally sourced seasonal produce where possible. Our dedicated Food Services Coordinator oversees menu development and food preparation practices in line with the strictest food safety standards.

Sharing meals with friends and loved ones is one of the best things in life and at Sesame Lane, mealtimes are fun and social events. Laughter is always a big part of proceedings and children are invited to choose their food and serve themselves. Children also actively participate by helping to set the table, plate the meals and clear the dishes, which makes them feel very grown up and helps develop their coordination.

Wellbeing tip: in our experience, even notoriously fussy eaters respond enthusiastically to new flavours when surrounded by their peers. Naturally if your child won’t eat a certain meal, we will provide an alternative.

Special dietary requirements

Vegetarian meals are available on request and we keep strict records of all allergies and intolerances. If your child requires a special diet for any reason, we will work closely with you to ensure they’re getting the nutrition they need.
