NUTRITION

At The Herd, we provide morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea (and, of course, plenty of water to drink!). Our child care menu changes every week and offers a range of meals and snacks that are nutritionally balanced, wholesome and fresh. Our menu is designed and prepared by our on-site chef.
