Meals & Nutrition

Our meals are prepared daily by Kids Gourmet Food (KGF), which delivers them fresh to Little Friends Early Learning every morning. KGF design the meals in consultation with nutritionists and dieticians to ensure the highest nutritional standards. High-quality, seasonal ingredients are used and the KGF chefs will cook and snap-chill all meals prior to delivery.

We decided to go with KGF as they are experts in child nutrition, produce a variety of child-friendly meals, We noticed children would eat more and they also provide individual packaging for kids with special dietary, religious and cultural requirements.

Nutritional menus are rotated every 6 weeks and vary by the seasons. This exposes children to the broadest range of flavours, textures and ingredients, while ensuring they are receiving the recommended nutritional intake every day.

What are the Australian Dietary Guidelines?

Good nutrition is essential for all Australians, but especially for babies and children. It’s never too early to help them learn about eating and develop healthy habits. The Australian Dietary Guidelines provide recommended advice about the types and amounts of foods, food groups and dietary patterns that aim to:

  • promote health and wellbeing
  • reduce the risk of diet-related conditions, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity
  • reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some types of cancers.

Children with food allergies

A child with food allergies or special dietary requirements can be stressful for parents. Therefore, it’s important to notify us so we can make sure your child is safely catered for. 

KGF offer a range of tailored meals to ensure your child feels included and can enjoy a wholesome, tasty and fun experience at every meal time.
