At Sunshine Childcare we are committed to ensuring that we provide a wholesome, nutritional and balanced diet to support the development of each child. We ensure meal times are flexible and empowering for children, encouraging their independence, promoting self-help and supporting positive decisions regarding healthy eating. Meals are an opportunity for children and teachers to engage in conversation and develop relationships.
Our Menu is developed termly, on a four-week rotation with seasonal and homegrown fruit and vegetables available each day. Our onsite chef provides varied and nutritious meals in alignment with our Healthy Heart Programme, of which we hold a Rito (Founding) Award. Our Chef has a food safety certificate which is renewed every 2 years.
We are extremely proud and excited to announce that we have received a Rito Healthy Heart Award from the Heart Foundation for the amazing things we do to promote healthy food and physical activity. We are helping our tamariki to have healthy habits and healthy hearts for life.
