Promoting Positive
Nutritional Habits

At Clovel, our belief is that we have a responsibility to promote good nutrition for children in our care. As such, all Clovel Educators are familiar with hygiene standards, nutrition principles for children and food safety laws.

The food provided by Clovel plays an important role in the growth and development of your child from an overall health and strength perspective and in the development of positive future eating habits.

Your child will be provided with a variety of foods such as vegetables, fruits, cereals, lean meats and dairy. These foods include a range of textures and tastes that are appropriate to the developmental stages of different age groups.

Water is available at our Clovel water stations all day and our educators actively encourage all children to remain hydrated throughout each day.

Multicultural Program
and Special Days Menu

In line with our Multicultural Program and Special Days, we also provide a hot meal for lunch on a regular basis. We still offer regular sandwiches on these days as some children do not like the hot meal option. These meals are nutritious and include dishes such as:

  • Meat pies – Australia
  • Fried rice – China
  • Fish & chips – New Zealand
  • Souvlaki – Greece
  • Chip butties (sandwiches) – England
  • Huspop (stew) – Netherlands
  • Spaghetti Bolognese – Italy
  • Shepherd’s Pie – UK
  • Kofta & tzatziki – Egypt
  • Paella – Spain
  • Butter chicken, rice and pappadums – India

The feedback we get from families has been nothing but positive. Your child will love the choice and options they are offered.

Promoting School Readiness

Promoting School Readiness

In the months leading up to your child’s new beginning at primary school, our “School Readiness” group are regularly given a packed lunch by the Educators at their centre.

They practice sitting in a group, unwrapping sandwiches from cling wrap and opening packets. They also discuss what is in their lunch today.
