    Yeah, that's the problem. 100's and 1000's and sprinkles are entirely different.

    We've just moved and therefore DD moved daycares. Previous centre did not provide food so I packed lunches.
    Their fees $86 per day .
    New centre provides food. It's not cooked on premises but delivered. I'm very impressed with the menu. If I had a photo of it I'd share it.
    Their fees.... $87 per day!

    How crazy is that.
    And the food is great and my daughter who does have feeding issues etc is eating it.

    I haven't seen fairy bread on the menu though!

    To me it makes much more sense to pack your own food - you know what your child is eating, instead of having to stress and get upset about a menu
    I do agree that its easier to just pack your own food. I love that at school its up to the parents to provide the food. So much easier for a number of reasons.

    This whole "daycare providing meals" absolutely astounds me. What happened to preparing and sending food with your child each day?

    Would solve all of the problems.
    Because most centers that provide food don't allow you to send your own, or highly discourage it unless there's a very good reason.

    Well if food wasn't included then the price would be cheaper.

    I am so glad you lovely ladies reminded me that 'those inferior long colourful things' are called sprinkles. My brain seriously does not work well sometimes. Or at all lol.

    I've read through all the posts and feel pretty strongly about this. I don't think there's any two ways about it and I think the onus lies both with parents and childcare workers to teach our children about the fecking difference between 100s & 1000s and that abomination of a straight pasty coloured creation known as sprinkles. The later should be banned not only from cc centres, but the entire planet.

    I'd also be pretty happy if fairy bread wasn't a regular feature on a daycare menu but I really feel that discussion undermines the real issue at hand.

    Then go with one that doesn't provide food. The menu posted before looked like absolute crap. I wouldn't be paying for that.

    And thank god for that. God forbid those hideous looking "school lunches" that exist in other countries ever become common place here.

    I visited 9 centres before enrolling my DD. Not one of those centres allowed outside food. I have friends who have their kids in cc and not one of those is allowed to bring food either. I actually had no idea that centres existed that didn't provide food.
