Here at Little Learners EDEC, we passionately believe that fostering healthy eating habits is paramount for the holistic development of children.

A nutritious diet not only supports physical growth and development but also enhances cognitive function, concentration, and overall well-being.

By providing meals cooked daily on site by our in-house resident chef using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, we ensure that children receive the highest quality nutrition tailored to their growing bodies and minds.

This approach not only guarantees the freshness and nutritional value of the meals but also instils in children an appreciation for wholesome, sustainable food choices from an early age.

Moreover, offering a variety of balanced and nutritious meals within the childcare setting serves as a crucial educational opportunity. Children learn about the importance of diverse food groups, portion control, and the benefits of whole foods versus processed alternatives.

Through engaging activities such as meal preparation, gardening, feeding the chickens and tasting sessions, they develop a deeper understanding of where food comes from and how it nourishes their bodies.

By creating a positive food environment that prioritises fresh, locally sourced ingredients, we empower our children to make healthier food choices both within the childcare setting and beyond, laying the foundation for a lifetime of heathy well-being.

We are always on the lookout for new recipes, so if you have a favourite, please let us know, better still come in and show the children how to make it, they LOVE having visitors.​
