A) pick a childcare where you can supply your own food
B) pick a childcare who's menu who approve of
C) pick a childcare who's menu you don't approve of, but you've got no other choices
With option C - you can then either whinge about it online, which isn't going to change the menu or you can arrange a meeting with the director and express your concerns about the menu.
So then the menu might change or it might not. Which then leaves you to decide as to what's more important - the kid being in childcare and getting crap food or the kid not being in childcare and getting healthy food.
Try getting a spot in childcare in most places. You are lucky if you can get your first choice let alone 2nd/3rd/4th.
And yes, many people put their child on waiting lists when pregnant to *try* and get a spot.
It is not that easy.

Wow that's a really poor menu! I'm failing to see balanced there. Barely any protein and not a lot of veg at all.
All I see is packaged food and a lot of carbohydrates with some fruit thrown in.
If my DD's daycare had shown me a menu like that, I'd have ran for the hills!
I was concerned with the lack of vegetables and the high salt/sugar content of the menu...
