Children's Meals

We recognise the important connection between a healthy diet and a child’s ability to learn effectively and to achieve well.  Meal times are an important part of our daily routine at Greenfields because the sharing of food builds a sense of belonging and community.  It is an opportunity to nurture and celebrate our cultural diversity and an excellent bridge for building friendships.

A lot of thought goes into planning a balanced and nutritional menu for our children as well as into providing a warm family atmosphere where children can enjoy their meals together.
