The Thinkers.inq Food Program
We will never grow as fast as we do the first five years of our life! It stands to reason that we echo this incredible developmental stage with the best nourishment possible, supporting our children’s growth – mind and body – with deep nutrition. Thinkers.inq food will:
• always be ‘nasties free’ – no numbers, no artificial colouring, no preservatives, sulphites or msg
• always be balanced and provide steady energy
• always be nutritionist approved
• always be made with fresh ingredients
• always be low sugar, making use of natural sweetness of fruits – nature’s lollies!
• be organic where possible, including meats
Our food program will be one that supports our children in both mind and body, giving them slow burning steady fuel snacks. Everyday children will enjoy hearty deliciousness at lunch time and special “real food” treats. At every turn the ingredients used serve to nourish and build robust health and enhance their being, becoming and belonging.
We also understand the high level of food intolerances today and have created menus to support these needs. Our menus for those ordering through Thinkers.inq will:
• Support strengthening the body
• Always be gluten free at the main lunch meal
• Nut free
• Dairy free and egg free options available every day
Our meals and snacks will be interesting and delicious, enabling children to appreciate food, enjoy it, be mindful eaters and explore new tastes often. Our food will be highly nourishing, providing not only vitamins, but minerals, healthy fats, protein and complex carbohydrates.
Each quarter we will hold a tasting with the parents and an information night with our food program designer, Alexx Stuart and nutritionist Kate Johnston of Kore Wellbeing. These evenings will serve to share tips for home on nourishing meals, nutrition tips as well as provide a sample of what the little ones enjoy during their day to day at Thinkers.inq.
To have a fantastic day of creative and purposeful play, we want to steer clear of a big sugary start to the day. Did you know that a bowl of fruit and flake style cereal and a glass of orange juice, equates to half a kilo of sugar per week?
At our breakfast table you can expect…
As the children play and learn, we don’t want to feed an energy slump with something too high in sugar (for example, a big glass of apple juice has the same amount of sugar as a can of coke!). So for snacks, we will give them a selection of yummy, nourishing treats to enjoy that will carry them steadily through to their next main meal, be it lunch or dinner back at home.
What you can expect…
Lunch, being the main fuel of the day will also serve to allow our little learners to connect and share a meal together. The meals will be fun and always have an element where the children can be empowered to make choices. At our lunch table you can expect…
We are passionate about ensuring that Thinkers.inq children are given every opportunity to thrive and we proud to be integrating a food program that demonstrates that passion. We are equally passionate about supporting your efforts at home, with regular information nights, demonstrations and community recipe booklets, full of quick meal ideas and nourishment tips and tricks for fussy eaters!
Learning the benefits of wholesome food and mindful eating from an early age, sets people up for a life of great food choices. Australia is the No4 country in the world in regards to the growing obesity statistics and we believe that a bit of education and an abundance of real food is what our children need to thrive and be healthy.
“You don’t need no surveys. You don’t need no scientists to see the health problems and hear about the crap these poor kids are eating… You need real food. We need to collaborate to fix this. We need to be noisy. Every child deserves to know as a human right, where our food comes from”. Jamie Oliver.
