The first SeasonalLittle People Childcare Menu

Many families have their children in 5 days of childcare for a myriad of reasons. This is not a guilt trip about working parents, it is reality.And so, we need to make sure that our children are exposed to nutrient dense whole food menus, Every-Single-Day.Not just at home but at childcare too.

Childcare centres are under immense pressure administratively and from a budgetary point of view.They are time poor and like most educators, working beyond their scheduled hours.This LPN childcare resource is designed to take the guess work out of the kitchen. To assist the educators and cooks, inspire and empower them to make the best choices in nutrition and menus as well as extending their food education program.

This is not a recipe book!It is a menu plan / recipe guide / awesome-ly delicious program.

Each seasonal menu will contain:

Monthly Menu

A 4 week, seasonal menu with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.


Complete recipes based on 20 standard child serves (easily multiplied based on how many rooms you have).

Dietary Guidelines

Recipes and menus are designed to incorporate the Australian Dietary Guidelines and “Get up and Grow”Guidelines.

Shopping List

Weekly suggested shopping list.


Suggested servings for different age groups.

Introducing Solids

Suggested puree ideas for babes who are starting solids.


Live webinars to guide your centre through the whole program.

Food Education Activities

Cooking and food play activities which work alongside the menu.


Videos to assist in understanding and cooking the menu and how best to serve it.

Menu Alterations

Suggested menu alterations for food requirements such as gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, halal, dairy free, egg free and other intolerances.

Group Discussion

Closed group discussions amongst childcare cooks and educators as well as live sessions with Little People Nutrition.


And so much more by being part of an ever growing community of parents and educators.

We are so excited and passionate about this resource!Register your details so that when this program is fully baked we can let you know directly.
