White Rabbit Child Care Centre Meals & Nutrition
There is clear evidence that childhood nutrition has a lasting effect on many aspects of health. Children need fresh wholesome food and well balanced meals for energy and well being.
At White Rabbit Child Care Centre our qualified chef prepares nutritious meals on site daily from a seasonally adjusted menu. All meals are appetising, nutritious and include ingredients from the five food groups, as well as complying with recommended dietary requirements. All our meals take into account the cultural backgrounds and special dietary needs of all the children attending the Centre.
