Establishing healthy food habits in children can be challenging. It’s a common complaint from parents despairing over picky eaters and demands for sugary treats. Luckily, the team at Bear Park early childcare education centres are experts when it comes to fostering good nutrition in kids.
Fruit, vegetables, and herbs from their playground gardens are a starring role in meals at the centres. The children get a balanced diet and menus made up of local, seasonal produce whenever possible.
Mealtime is a positive and relaxed time for the children. There’s a focus on social interaction and healthy habits, and the dining room is set up so that the kids can eat at shared tables.
Understanding the importance of good nutrition is much easier if children have been active participants in food preparation and discussions about healthy habits from a young age.
