We have designed and developed this program by working along side qualified industry professionals to cover all the aspects of childcare. We have focused on nutrition, development and education, with the view to creating a bright start for the next generation and teaching them to be conscious of ecological issues.
A Child's diet is an extremely important part of their overall health and development. The right diet fuels the body with lasting energy, gives children the needed boost to grow and develop, and at times even to heal.
At Lilly & Pea we have always been conscious and pro-active of this by introducing a home cooked, well balanced diet to provide the best outcome for the children's wellbeing.
With Green Kid, we decided to take it to the next level and employ a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist (RD BSc PGDip HCPC) to design a plant based nutritionally balanced diet boosting a variety of health benefits that will deliver the optimum start and future to every child.
Our new menu contains all the daily recommended macronutrient intakes for children and will in-still positive, healthy eating habits in an era where what we eat has never been more imperative to our health and well being and the future of our planet.
GreenKid® is a realistic and raw approach to the development and education of children. Teaching kids to appreciate the talents, abilities and skills of professionals as well as inviting them to participate and contribute in learning and developing new skills.
We are teaming up with a talented local musician to play the Guitar who will sing songs and rhymes with the children. Kids will learn that music is actually created by skilfully playing an instrument and the enjoyment that comes with it, they will listen to live music, sing and have fun.
The children will have access to facilities to grow, cultivate, harvest, prepare and enjoy a variety of fruits and vegetables to learn where the food actually comes from.
We are registered with the International Eco-School Program, a child-led and adult supported process of exciting learning about environmental issues.
We are also looking forward to offer a fully qualified Forrest School provided by an external specialist to teach a hands-on learning experience of the natural world.
It has never been more significant to educate children and communicate to them the importance of Ecology. It is inevitable in this day and age that we have to be conscious of ecological issues and understand that they are crucial for human well being and progress.
With GreenKid® we teach about topics such as, recycling, not being wasteful and respecting resources, educating children about nature and wildlife in the urban environment, teaching to compost, grow and cultivate our own fruit and vegetables and walking and cycling where possible.
Also, by educating children on the connections and impact of our dietary choices on the environment, we hope to inspire the future generation to form more aware, passionate and responsible habits.
