The Importance of Nutrition for Preschoolers.
Good nutrition is essential for preschoolers as it impacts their holistic physical and mental development.
All Skool4Kidz Preschools comply with the Healthy Promotion Board (HPB) food service guidelines by incorporating ingredients from the four main groups. They are namely grains, good protein sources, vegetables and fruits. For each main meal, we ensure HPB’s guidelines of a quarter plate of whole grains and good proteins with another half plate of fruit and vegetables for a balanced diet. These help our little ones to receive the appropriate nutrients necessary for their growing needs.
All Skool4Kidz Preschool meals are freshly cooked in the in-house kitchens daily. Ingredients used come with the Healthier Choice Symbol and it is noteworthy that deep fried and preserved foods are avoided. The use of fat, sugar and salt is also reduced. Brown rice and wholemeal breads are part of the children’s daily food offering as well.
Food, Glorious Food!
There is a different menu every day. The children select from oat milk porridge with raisins or brown rice cereal with milk for breakfast. For a typical lunch, our preschoolers have a choice of soya sauce chicken with egg and lettuce on brown rice or multi-grain porridge with mushroom, carrots and corns. Fresh fruits and nutritious drinks are always available too. Teatime packs more nutritious goodies such as green bean and barley soup or whole meal egg sandwiches.
Our cooks work in fully equipped professional kitchens to ensure freshly cooked healthy meals daily for our littles ones. They are supervised by our very own in-house nutritionist to ensure the best nutrition at every meal.
Achieving Platinum to Ensure Our Preschoolers’ Nutrition.
It is a commendable that most of our centres are certified under the Health Promotion Board’s “Healthy Meals in Preschools Programme” (HMPP). Some of Skool4Kidz Preschools are even awarded the highest Platinum status for comprehensive school health promotion practices as well.
It is with pride that we ensure all preschoolers in our care are safe and healthy always.
