To maatua tahua/ Our Menu.
At Sovereign Star Preschool we provide a two week menu of delicious seasonal food.
We develop the menu seasonally in consultation with ngā whānau/families, ngā tamariki/children and ngā kaiako/teachers.
We strive to offer a balanced menu with plenty of variety and healthy choices so ngā tamariki develop a positive relationship with food and their bodies.
Healthy Heart Award
We are proud to be associated with the Healthy Heart Award. Together with the Heart Foundation, we are helping our tamariki learn life long healthy habits, and leading them towards a healthier future.
We wish to create an environment that promotes healthy eating and supports families in making nutritious choices. We aim to provide all tamariki at the preschool with a cooked, healthy and nutritious meal during the day. We encourage the children and parents to eat healthily and model healthy eating with our own meals.
Lunch Box Policy
Sovereign Star Preschool aims to encourage tamariki and their whānau to make healthy choices for the children's lunchboxes. Foods such as lollies, potato chips, chocolate, processed fruit bars, etc. are discouraged. The foods not in-line with Sovereign Star's policy will be returned quietly to the parents and the child will be given a healthy alternative.
Sovereign Star believes in educating whānau and tamariki on the impact packaging from foods has on the environment.
