What's on the menu at St Nicholas Early Education Raymond Terrace


St Nicholas Early Education Raymond Terrace works to promote a healthy diet by providing delicious and nutritious meals and drinks inline with the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating and the Dietary Guidelines for children and adolescents.

Karlene is the cook at St Nicholas Raymond Terrace. Working with the cook at St Nicholas Early Education Lochinvar, Karlene develops dishes for the children at Raymond Terrace with a very special ingredients...all the dietary requirements children need in a day!

“It can be hard to make sure your children get all their vegetables and dairy and everything they need,” says Karlene.

“I try to encourage [children] with making their own food. We’ve made pizza, and wraps and the children are really enjoying that.”

At St Nicholas Early Education, we ensure children in our centres are getting all of their dietary requirements. This includes: two serves of vegetables, legumes and beans; one serve of fruit; two serves of grains and cereal; a half serve of lean meat; and one serve of milk, yogurt and cheese.

Community Kitchen Book at St Nicholas Early Education Raymond Terrace

St Nicholas Early Education Raymond Terrace has created a Community Kitchen Book as a way of getting Karlene more involved with the centre’s educational programs as well as connecting with St Nick’s families.

In the Community Kitchen Book you will find copies of Karlene’s weekly menus as well as copies of her kid-friendly recipes. The book also contains a section for family recipes where families can contribute their favourite recipes to cook at home.

The Community Kitchen Book is available for families to peruse while visiting St Nicholas Early Education Raymond Terrace, and if you see a recipe you’d like to try at home, ask a friendly member of the Raymond Terrace team to photocopy it for you!

The recipe featured here is Karlene’s beef and vegetable bolognese which is always a favourite at St Nick’s. If you’d like to download the recipe, you can do so here.
