Cressy Road Cottages Kitchen menus is managed by one of our owners, Juli, who is qualified in Nutrition and Menu Planning and Food Handling.

In developing our menus, we closely follow the nutritional guidelines of Munch and Move, Get Up and Grow and Nutrition Australia.

Our menus are nutritionally balanced across a two week period to give children 50% of their recommended daily intake (RDI). Our recipes are developed in-house to minimise added fats and sugars. (More details on our Menu development at ‘Our Kitchen’.)
