Welcome to Best Start Pukuatua and the world of healthy heart baking. We are proud to hold a gold Healthy Heart award here and this means, we take nutrition and health for our children seriously. Our centre cook (Nanny Rosey) creates meals that are high in fibre, fresh fruits and vegetables, and low in fat, sugar and salt. 

Today on the menu was beetroot and banana piklets with fresh fruit. Nanny Rosey has as much input from the tamariki as possible with the preparation of food, the serving of food, and the feedback. 

Having a gold healthy heart means all our menus have been approved by the Heart Foundation and we spent 2 years achieving this goal for the health of our Tamariki. We also have regular exercise such as dance parties, yoga, lots of outside running and climbing to keep our body healthy and strong. 

Our menu is displayed at the centre each week and we have things like, creamy vegetable pasta bake, rice cakes with cottage cheese, hummus, beetroot, curry chicken, yoghurt, and fresh fruit for morning and afternoon tea daily. We are committed to making sure all our Tamariki have the best start in life with nutrition being a huge part of this. Feel free to pop into our amazing centre and smell the amazing smells that are cooking each day.
