The menus at Hester How Early Learning Centre are developed by a caterer, in consultation with a licensed nutritionist. The four-week rotating menu is seasonally adjusted and provides the centre with a hot lunch and two snacks daily. The menu is nut and pork free. Individual substitutions are provided for children with food restrictions due to allergy, sensitivity, religious belief, etc.
A housekeeper assists the educators with the daily hot lunch service. The centre's meals and snacks are available to all children who have made the transition to table food.
Hester How Early Learning Centre strives to be a peanut/nut free centre. Nut-containing foods have been eliminated from our menus. We have a policy that prohibits outside foods from being brought on site (with some limited exceptions e.g. milk/food items for infants who are still transitioning to table food.)
