Our state-of-the-art commercial kitchen provides the ultimate cooking environment for our qualified chefs to create fresh, nutritious meals and snacks for children.
We provide breakfast, morning tea, a two course cooked lunch, afternoon tea and a light supper. All meals are prepared in our kitchens by experienced chefs who are adept at catering for children with special dietary requirements and food allergies.
We align ourselves with Healthy Together Victoria, an independent non-profit organisation that promotes the health and well-being of all Australians. Healthy Together Victoria review our menus, our food types and serving quantities utilising their scientifically based nutrition research to help us ensure we are providing our children with healthy meal plans.
At Buckets we also believe that the meal time atmosphere is important to the development of healthy eating practices. Children should be happy and relaxed when they are eating. To ensure this, educators sit alongside the children while they are eating and are encouraged to eat a portion of the meal to support discussion and role modelling of healthy eating.
