Horsley Kids Nutrition Manual

This information has been put together for the information of parents and carers of children who attend Horsley Kids.

In line with their quest for excellence in childcare Horsley Kids approached Zest Nutrition Consulting to conduct menu planning for the centre. Susan Williams Accredited Practising Dietitian and Accredited Nutritionist has developed the current menu to meet energy and nutrient requirements and also needs of cultural diversity and variety.

There is so much information and misinformation circulating about diet and nutrition, it is common for people to become confused about what is right and best especially for the kids we love so much. This booklet aims to simplify and clarify kids nutrition needs so we can all do what is right and best for them.

This information covers the basics in nutrition  – the major energy sources and foods that provide them, important food groups and good eating behaviour. I hope this will be a living document that grows to meet your needs, your feedback and questions are welcome.

Thank you for taking the time to read through this information and I hope you found it informative and reassuring.

What other parents say about us..

Mila cannot speak highly enough of all the teachers in the Bambini room, and every encounter I've had thus far with Sue, Renee, Sarah and Mariam have been wonderful. It's nice to know she has these lovely ladies looking out for her whilst she is under your care.
