Our Nutrition

At Butterflies, we provide all children, including babies 5 meals a day such as Breakfast, Morning Tea, Lunch, Afternoon Tea and a Late Snack. 

We use a specialist caterer called Kids Gourmet Food who delivers fresh home style food, day in day out. We cater for a variety of cultural tastes and children are provided with seasonal menus which rotate every 6 weeks. Kids Gourmet Foods work with nutritionists and dieticians and consult with national advisory groups to ensure the highest nutritional standards. 

In our six-week rotational menu, our children’s meals contain food from the five food groups recommended by the Australian Dietary Guidelines.

Our healthy and balanced meals include a variety of:

  • Fresh vegetables and legumes
  • Seasonal fruit
  • Wholegrains and seeds
  • Lean fresh meat and fish
  • Dairy options

Our menus also offer a wide selection of fresh fruit and raw vegetables with morning and afternoon tea, as well as steamed, fresh vegetables at lunchtime. Alternative menus are also available for children who have special dietary requirement or allergies.
