Making food safety a priority

Goodstart stories

Safety, hygiene and wellbeing are more than words – they’re who we are and what we do. 
We have updated our food practices to become even safer for children with allergies or dietary requirements. We understand the complexities around food for some families and are here to meet your needs.
Goodstart centres which provide food have now completed comprehensive training by ASCIA to increase understanding of safety around food, including how to prevent cross-contamination with potential allergens.
Nationwide, we have now adjusted our menus, updated our kitchen processes and restricted the use of peanuts, treenuts and shellfish. This is in addition to accommodating all individual dietary restrictions or food preference – no requirement is too difficult for us!
In fact, every child with a medically diagnosed food allergy or a dietary preference (including intolerance, cultural or religious reasons, or basic preference) is now provided a complete menu that is specifically designed to meet their individual needs (breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and late snack) *.
We are committed to food safety and are constantly working on enhancing our processes.
We’re for every child and making sure the food they receive is safe for their individual requirements.
Because we’re Goodstart. 
When you visit a centre, make sure you ask about their food safety processes – Goodstart centres will be happy to tell you all about it!
