Late afternoon snack (Around 5pm)

A savoury snack for the children who need a little something to keep them going until dinner time.

Drinks – Children are offered the option of water or milk throughout the day.

All hot food is prepared by a catering company, called Kids Gourmet Foods (KGF), and they specialise in Child Care Centre meals. These meals are delivered to the centre fresh every day and do not contain any preservatives or nuts,

Kids Gourmet Food will cater to all dietary, intolerance and allergy requirements so please ensure that you inform the Director of any requirements your child has prior to the commencement of their enrolment.

Balmain Care for Kids is strictly a “nut free” organisation and to properly monitor this we ask that parents do not bring any food products into the centres. This helps us reduce the risk of children having an allergic reaction, as we have a number of children with life-threatening allergies that attend our service.
