Our Service has a responsibility to help children to develop healthy food habits and attitudes. By working with families and all Educators, we will also positively influence each child’s health and good nutrition. Our Weekly Menu is based on the Australian Dietary Guidelines and the Australian Governments Get Up & Grow: Healthy Eating and Physical Activity for Early Childhood. The Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools is based on the Australian Dietary Guidelines for Children and adolescents (2003) and The Australian Guide to Healthy Eating (AGTHE).
We will:
• Role model and promote healthy eating and activity choices throughout the day to all children and families.
• Promote healthy eating and nutritional concepts to promote healthy, active habits in children from a young age.
• Support all our families in educating their children about healthy food choices by providing information about our daily menu and recipe ideas upon request.

The food prepared and served to the children attending EPSS OHSC is nutritiously prepared from scratch by the EPSS Tuckshop and OSHC team. During term time, we provide breakfast and Afternoon Tea and late snacks to the children. During Vacation Care, children are required to bring their Morning and Afternoon Tea and we provide lunch every day.
