The hours?

Passionate about Nutrition?

To ensure we are serving dishes that are packed with lots of nutrients all year round, we rotate our menu’s based on the current season to get the most from our ingredients.
To effectively do this, we work in conjunction with Healthy Heart, centre families, children, teachers, our Centre Cook and yourself to create the best menu possible for our tamariki.
