Food & Nutrition
Journey Early Learning has launched a new partnership with Wholesome Child.
The partnership between Journey and Wholesome Child is to introduce and ensure our children are getting the most nutritious balanced meals daily. We want to promote the growth and development of children, as well as teaching children, families and educators healthy eating habits.
Lead paediatric nutritionist, Mandy Sacher, CEO of Wholesome Child has designed custom seasonal menus for Journey centres ensuring that all children receive fresh, nutritious and balanced meals every day.
We praise ourselves on providing a personalised experience to everyone, EVERYDAY, and feel this partnership will add to the overall experience to our families and children.
This partnership will not only see new menus with a focus on nutrient rich balanced meals, we will also educate families, children and educators on the benefits of healthy eating with regular blogs and communication from Wholesome Child.
Whenever children gather to eat and drink, it becomes an opportunity for social interactions and language development. Our educators create a relaxed and home-like atmosphere while ensuring that the nutritional value of the meal meets the child’s needs.
We support mothers who wish to breastfeed their child whilst in our service and we welcome parent input into our menu planning and the individual needs or preferences of your child.
The Kitchen and each room have a copy of all dietary requirements and food allergies , we also encourage families to meet with our Cook during the orientation process to discuss your child’s specific needs.
To ensure strict compliance with all nutritional guidelines and due to children’s allergies, we ask all families not to bring food into the centre.
