Food policies & menus

Here at Curious Caterpillars snack and meal times are an important part of a child’s day and forms part of their daily routine. Eating represents a social time for children and adults and also provides children opportunities to learn about healthy eating. At all our snack and meal times we aim to provide nutritious food which meets the children’s individual dietary needs.

We also take cultural, religious and medical needs into account and operate best practice procedures to see that these are adhered to.
