At Golden Square Kindergarten we are actively planting and harvesting our garden for cooking healthy foods with the children.
We do a weekly Letterland food challenge where we choose 2-3 foods for the children to try that start with the letter of the week, for example A may be apple and avocado. This program runs for 26 weeks as we work our way through the alphabet. We find more and more children each year going home and trying new foods with families, introducing more healthy foods to their diet.
We encourage ‘nude foods’ at our Centre and healthy food options for all snacks and lunches. We recycle all our left over foods in our worm farm and compost bins.
We are excited to be nominated by the Stephanie Alexander Pilot program for 2019.
