Healthy eating

At The Green Elephant, we passionately believe in the power of nutrition to fuel our children’s physical and mental growth. Our Centre Chefs excel is in creating nutritionally balanced, customised meals and snacks, with every dish thoughtfully prepared on-site. We strive to instil curiosity and adventure in food exploration, enabling children to discover various tastes and textures. Our approach ensures that all dietary needs and preferences are accommodated inclusively and safely. This dedication transforms each mealtime into an enjoyable and nutritious experience for every baby, toddler, and preschooler in our care.

The Green Elephant’s food experiences

At The Green Elephant, we place a high priority on nourishing our young children with wholesome, natural, and nutrient-rich foods. Our approach extends beyond simply offering healthy meals; it involves immersing children in the complete food journey from earth to table. We champion sensory exploration, encouraging children to smell, touch, and taste fresh ingredients, fostering an appreciation for food and its diversity. Our aim is to spark lifelong curiosity about food and establish healthy eating habits from an early age.

Edible Gardens

Our Edible Gardens are fundamental to our approach towards promoting healthy lifestyles. These gardens serve a greater purpose than merely growing food; they are dynamic classrooms where children actively interact with nature. Through the processes of planting, caring for, and harvesting their own fruits and vegetables, our young learners acquire essential knowledge about the natural world. They gain an understanding of where theirfood come from and the significance of sustainable practices.

Cooking adventure

At The Green Elephant, our Cooking Adventures aim to transform young learners into aspiring chefs. These sessions encompass more than mere food preparation; they ignite curiosity, creativity, and a passion for culinary arts in children. Guided by our experienced educators, children gain hands-on experience in mixing, measuring, and comprehending ingredients. This practical learning not only deepens their understanding of nutrition but also promotes healthy eating habits.
