Children may spend eight hours or more each day in care. The NSW Ministry of Health recommends that children in care for eight hours be provided with at least 50% of the Recommended Dietary Intake (RDI) of all nutrients. Our service provides a range of education and support opportunities to help childcare centres plan nourishing meals for the children in their care.
