August 11, 2020
Welcome, how much would you spend to improve the health of the children in your service? New research suggests you may only need to invest $50 cents per day! Also, meet our educator in the Spotlight Ellen Tsagaris from First Steps Early Education in NSW.
Would you spend 50 cents per day for healthier kids?
Fifty cents per child per day is all it would take to improve the nutritional value of food at long day care centres, according to new research from Edith Cowan University (ECU).

An ECU research team surveyed menu offerings from 30 long day care centres in metropolitan Perth and found that by increasing their food expenditure by just 50 cents, they were four times more likely to meet food provision recommendations.
