    So whilst I agree most kids don't show restraint, those with perfect little eaters claim quite the opposite.
    My kid would probably live on twisties and chocolate milk, he makes a beeline for cake at parties he actually has a salty palate over sweet and we still let him have normal treats but unfortunately majority of the time we have to keep him on food with as little additives as possible or else his hyperactivity is just out of control.

    For some kids, sugar and processed food is just a nightmare. It's not about being on your high horse about nutrition, it's about not trying to deal with a 2 year old who's burning around till midnight, literally!

    Um yes!!!! They are so inferior! ! I recently made a sprinkle covered rainbow cake... and had to go to two different shops to get the genuine article.

    Once a week they have sweet biscuits, and once a month they have fairy bread. I think that's perfectly fine.
    I think sometimes people need to remember that child care centers have to cater to EVERYONE. The very health conscious right down to the fussiest of fussy eaters. Plus the budget you're working with is generally minuscule. I have helped write one of those menus and it's incredibly hard to get the balance right. The only thing about this menu I would say is that it seems to be lacking in vegetables a bit, but honestly it's a very standard menu for a child care centre.

    Yes. They are the worst. You need to report your child care to The Hague.

    Out of 4 weeks that's really not so bad. I don't see an issue with these menus.

    I've got 3 kids.

    DD1 will eat a lolly or 2 at a party and go and play. I will find her party bag full of lollies and chocolates months later. She saves it for later and forgets about it.

    DS hovers around at the food tables at parties and would eat 10 cupcakes if I let him. His party bag is demolished before we get home.

    DD2 will choose the healthy option every time.

    Three kids all raised the same, all totally different in regards to food.

    Here's my 3 at the Bunnings cafe. OMG is that refined sugar 2 of my children are consuming mother of the year right here

    You can see my youngest eating fruit salad. This is what she chose.

    Here's my DD2 ditching her lollipop for celery.

    She does this all the time.

    oh sod off. Stop pretending to be perfect.

    Why in the world would I see a post on page 5 or 6 that I wanted to respond to but then think "oh gee I'll keep reading the next 7 pages just in case they talk about something differently".

    i have no need to apologize.

    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!

    For those that get all upset about childcare menus - why don't you prepare/pack food your child instead?

    Instead of expecting other people to feed your child appropriately, why not just take responsibility for YOUR child and choose what they eat yourselves?

    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.

    I never said you needed to apologise. I apologised because it was the right thing to do.
