Your children will love their menu! We've included a great range of items that are familiar & simple, yet hold true to our promise of Real Food with plenty of nutritional value.
Menu items are displayed under Green, Orange & Red lights using our Traffic Light Food Guide criteria. We've done this so that you and your children can see the nutritional value each item offers. Because children already understand what Green, Orange & Red mean, it's easy to teach them to make healthy food choices. Learn all about it here.
Super healthy Real Food to treat only items - the choice is yours (or theirs!).
Our definition… “fresh food, close to its original & natural state, that’s nourishing and sustaining, with little or no added artificial ingredients”. Green items are the most true to this definition, and you'll find plenty of them on your menu.
