Healthy Eating

Every child needs a well-balanced diet in order to grow up and become future stars. So here at Bright Beginnings we are committed to providing a varied, healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables catered to children’s need so as to support their learning, growth and play.


The Menu

Our menu is planned, and food freshly prepared, by our onsite cook Laurie. Should your child have any special dietary, cultural or religious requirements just let Laurie and one of managers know and we’ll happy to work with you to create a healthy diet tailored to your child.
Our 9 day rolling menu is continually updated in response to seasonal changes and children’s preferences.
