Nutrition

Our After School Care teachers prepare fresh, nutritious food on site every day.

At Zein we believe that nutrition is one of the most important aspects of a child's development. A healthy, balanced diet and regular physical activity is essential for children’s health and well-being. Young children are growing quickly - they have high energy and nutrient requirements comparative to their their size. They also eat smaller amounts than older children and adults, so it is important for them to eat regular meals and snacks that contain sufficient energy and nutrients for their needs. Special dietary needs can normally be accounted for if teachers have been informed in advance.

It is important that children in After School Care strike the right balance between a healthy and fulfilling snack and eating too much before dinner at home later. Our after school menu includes plenty of fresh fruits and organic vegetables, supplemented with cooked meats or fish; pasta, rice, bread and cereals. We make it a priority to ensure that every child in our care eats as healthily as possible and experiences a range of wholesome options throughout each week. An example menu can be seen below:
