The variety in our menu is achieved by including ingredients and mild flavours from around the globe. Dietary restrictions for allergies or personal choice are respected and we can provide nutritional substitutes.
The exception is for infants, where we request parents to supply formula or milk substitutes if there is a brand or preference over cow’s milk.
Ordinarily we request no food is brought into the centre. We are however always happy to help celebrate children’s birthdays. For this we ask for parents to bring in a packet cake mix, or a cake that is prepared and packaged in a commercial kitchen with ingredients visible or available from the supplier. Alternatively, with some notice for our cook the children can make the birthday cake.
