We have developed a delicious and nutritious vegetarian meal plan at Little Scholars Learning Centre in conjunction with the National Healthy Heart Foundation and the New Zealand Food and Beverage classification systems.
We ensure the children receive their 5+ serves of fresh fruit and vegetables whilst they are in our care. We have achieved the National Healthy Heart Foundation award and work in conjunction with the New Zealand Food and Beverage classification systems. Lunches provide the daily requirements of protein and iron. As we are a vegetarian centre, all meat proteins are replaced with lentils, pulses, and egg. Morning and afternoon teas consist of a variety of fresh and dried fruits, vegetables and a plain biscuit, cracker or a piece of homemade baking. We also provide a dental hygiene snack that is a glass of low fat milk with apple to promote dental health.
All meals are prepared onsite by our full time chef using fresh seasonal ingredients. We have a four week menu plan which is seasonally adjusted and are displayed daily in the foyer.
