Our Menu

Our cook prepares varied, delicious and nutritious meals for the children each day. Our meals are cooked fresh, on-site each day. Children are served morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

Consistent with the Australian Dietary Guidelines, our menu includes:

  • Plenty of vegetables, legumes and fruits.
  • Plenty of cereals (including breads, rice, pasta and noodles) preferably wholemeal.
  • Lean meat, fish, poultry and/or alternatives.
  • Milks, yoghurts, cheese and/or alternatives.
  • Filtered tap water as a drink.

Menus are displayed in the main room and rotate every five weeks.

Cammeray Children’s Centre prefers:

  • Australian made and grown foods
  • Free range chicken and eggs
  • Lean varieties of beef
  • An ever-changing mix of the fresh seasonal fruit
  • Garden fresh herbs and vegetables
  • Salt reduced product varieties
  • Rice bran oil

Some of the children’s favourite meals include a wonderfully fragrant chicken curry, beef pastitsio and a honey soy chicken noodle stir fry.

If a child is hungry following a mealtime or between mealtimes, extra food is available. This may be in the form of an extra serving of the main meal or crackers, fruit or another small and healthy snack.

As we are an ‘Allergy Aware’ centre, please note that no food from home is to be brought into the centre, except with express permission.
