Our aim at Kidz on the Avenue is to provide the children with a variety of wholesome, healthy nutritional meals that the children will enjoy. The individual needs of all children will be accommodated when preparing meals for the children. This includes allergies and restrictions, as well as preferences and cultural and religious restrictions. Parents are encouraged to discuss any nutrition or food related issues with the Centre Manager during their initial visit.
Our home cooked meals are prepared on the premises by our trained and certified staff daily.
Parents are asked to supply 1-2 fruits of your child's preference for each day that their child attends care. We ask that parents place their daily fruit contribution in the fruit basket provided.
Our menu has been developed with the support of the Munch and Move program in accordance with NSW Health promotion officers and a qualified nutritionist.
