Eating the rainbow! Healthy eating includes plenty of colours.

Feb 1, 2020

If you’re a parent of a toddler or young child, these two words no doubt play a big part in your life: Chicken Nuggets!

What child doesn’t eat chicken nuggets? It’s your go-to food when your fussy eaters won’t eat anything else; they’re a fun treat for a birthday party. Chicken Nuggets are fun!

At Kids on Beaufort, our menu has everything BUT chicken nuggets! We want even our fussy eaters to experience a range of food that is healthy and nutritious, and offers exactly what growing bodies need.

Food is one of the most important things in life, and setting up good eating habits while children are young is a good thing. At Kids on Beaufort, our menus include hot meals, cold food, finger foods and plenty of fruit and vegetables.

We love to focus on colours in our food. The bright red of a strawberry or capsicum. Pretty pink watermelon. Yummy yellow bananas and little round blue berries. The green celery sticks that are fun to crunch!

We want kids to experience different textures and smells, temperatures of food, foods they eat with a spoon and food they eat with their hands. Foods from different cultures with different flavours that they might not get at home.

Kids love to play, and we like to include cooking or meal preparation as part of their activities where possible. And it doesn’t have to stop here! We encourage kids to help with cooking at home, and to keep eating their different coloured fruit and veggies!

Kids on Beaufort want all children to grow and thrive, so the food we offer must always be beneficial to their healthy growth. We pay extreme attention food allergies, and to general dislikes. We are pleased to offer a Halal menu and will cater for religious or cultural preferences.

Our new Autumn menu will be coming soon and we thank parents who have given their suggestions on meals for the cooler months.

If you want to know more about our menus or have any suggestions, we’d love to hear from you!
