Refined sugar-free, natural & wholesome meals for little tummies

Eating healthy meals

We believe that healthy eating habits begin at a young age and we understand the importance of high quality, healthy meals. We strive to serve only natural whole foods. 

Our meals are refined sugar-free and we celebrate fresh, seasonal, local produce by growing our own organic veggies and fruits in our gorgeous food garden and by building close relationships with local farmers delivering fresh produce to our doors. 
 
Our menu reflects our belief in care, nurture and respect. We only use free-range eggs and eliminate unnecessary processed foods, high additives and preservatives. We make our own breads, muffins and jam from raw, wholesome ingredients. 
Our menu can also be altered to cater for children with specific allergies and/or dietary requirements including vegetarian and vegan options. 

Please note, Little Seed ELC is a nut free zone – no nuts are to be brought to or consumed by children on the premises.

Safer Eating Practices

All ECE services that provide food need to ensure that it is prepared in accordance with the newly introduced Ministry of Health guidance to reduce the risk of choking, while still meeting the nutritional and developmental needs of each child. As we sometimes have food brought in from home for special occasions, we will also now require these foods to meet the same guidelines.

Foods that are provided by families that do not meet these new guidelines will now either need to be processed at the centre in accordance with the guidelines OR if we are required to exclude them, removed and if necessary, replaced with another suitable food option from the centre kitchen.

We understand that these new guidelines may require more preparation and thought on the foods you provide for your child.

Please see below for the best practice guidelines from the Ministry of Health. If you have any questions, or would like further information, please speak to the centre manager. 


Thanks in advance for your support with these guidelines, we really appreciate it!
