NUTRITION AT BAMBINI CHILDCARE CENTRES

We believe healthy eating habits are instilled at a young age, which guides our approach to nutrition. To ensure that your child has the energy they need to fulfill their potential, we provide a nutritious homemade menu created by our in-house chefs.

NOURISHING YOUR CHILD

Our menus rotate every four weeks to make the most of fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Every menu is developed and incorporates the specific nutritional needs of each child, age & stage of development. At Bambini we utilise fresh produce in a variety of recipes that meet all children’s dietary requirements and recommendations per Nutrition Australia.

Our Chefs are encouraged to be creative in their recipe selections to find a balance between optimal nutrients and delicious flavours.

Each of our qualified chefs are experienced in catering for food allergies, dietary intolerances, family preferences and cultural requirements.

NURTURING A LOVE OF FOOD

Mealtimes at Bambini are never rushed and are enjoyed as a moment to come together and share conversation.

They are viewed as an opportunity to practice self-help skills and the children are encouraged to serve themselves.

Every child is encouraged to take their time and make decisions about what they eat, while being supported to experience new textures and tastes. If a child isn’t comfortable with the daily menu selection, they are offered alternatives.

We believe in keeping routines flexible to align with home life and the daily needs of the individual child.

BAMBINI SPRING/SUMMER MENU (EXAMPLE)

All our Bambini menus have been assessed by the Healthy Eating Advisory Service and meet the menu-planning guidelines for healthy eating from Nutrition Australia.

We cater for children with food allergies, intolerances, food preferences and cultural needs, ensuring their individual health needs are met.

Please note the Bambini menu will constantly change with seasonal produce.
