LESSONS about about healthy eating get top priority at Young Achievers Early Learning Centre.

The long daycare centre's director Kathy Memovic said the curriculum focused on healthy eating and endorsed the NSW Health program Munch and Move.

"We believe that healthy eating in the early years will create lifelong habits, and it is crucial to educate children as early as two years of age to learn about the food they eat.

The dedicated and professional team at Young Achievers collaborate with families to encourage healthy eating habits," Ma Memovic said.

"All our meals are freshly prepared. High quality fresh fruit and fresh food are used in all meals, and healthy eating is emphasised at breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea," she said.

"We grow some vegetables and have an amazing herb garden and that produce is used chef in our meals."

Ms Memovic said the centre served multicultural hot meals planned and prepared by qualified chef Zeinab Rabah. All meals are halal and met the recommended dietary guidelines for young children.

"We seek input from families when planning our meals, we select recipes that promote healthy eating as well as cater for our diverse group of families," she said.

Ms Memovic also said the centre's educators worked with parents to achieve a child's educational needs.

"We have regular parents-teacher interviews so we can set goals," she said.
