Nutrition

GCCC has a qualified chef who prepares nutritious meals in our recently renovated commercial grade kitchen. Menus have been designed to ensure that we are meeting Australian dietary guidelines.

We are able to cater for children with special dietary requirements including allergies, intolerances and religious context.

There is a summer menu and a winter menu that rotate on a 4 weekly basis including seasonal fruit and vegetables. Children at the centre receive morning and afternoon tea as well as cooked lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack if required.

Meal times are more than just about the food. They are an opportunity for the children to have social time and develop language, self-help and hygiene skills. It is also a time to try new things and experience new tastes and textures.
