Nutrition is Key at Keiki Early Learning

As educators and parents ourselves, we understand that children need the right combination of foods to help them develop mentally and physically. That’s why we have partnered with Hayley, a qualified nutritionist from Nutritious Kids, who has worked with us to create a menu that is delicious, colourful and nutritious. Hayley enjoys coming out to visit the children, teaching them about the ‘super powers’ of different fruits and vegetables as well as encouraging them to try something new.

The Keiki Early Learning Kitchen

Our beautiful gardens include vegetable patches that allow children to watch their food grow and foster conversations about nutrition. Together with our qualified and passionate Cooks the children collect fresh ingredients for their meals or in play. Authentic eating utensils and real crockery allow children to develop their independence and physical skills while enjoying the social aspect of meal times. Children receive morning tea, a hot lunch, afternoon tea and nutritionally appropriate snacks.

Our menu is specially developed to meet children’s nutritional needs throughout the day. We run a rotating 3-week menu at all our Early Learning schools, please see the below sample Week 1 meal plan.
