Introducing Zoe! Our Newest Food service Coordinator. Bringing Nutrition and Joy to Creative Childcare Centres
The team at Creative Childcare are excited to introduce you to our new Food Service Coordinator, Zoe, who will be overseeing the culinary experience for our little ones at Creative Childcare Hunter Street. With her expertise in nutrition and passion for creating a positive relationship with food, Zoe is here to ensure that our children receive the best care when it comes to their diet and overall health.
Let’s get to know Zoe a little better.
Zoe is a talented Dietitian and Fitness Instructor, currently pursuing her certificate IV in Fitness. Zoe’s strong passion for health, fitness, and cooking has driven her to make a difference in children’s lives. Her aim is to provide them with delicious, well-balanced meals that support their specific nutritional needs at each stage of development.
But Zoe’s dedication to promoting healthy eating habits extends beyond her professional life. In her spare time, she enjoys quality moments with her loved ones, exploring the great outdoors, and challenging herself with creative activities like drawing, crocheting, and, of course, more cooking! Her zest for life is infectious, and she brings an energy that radiates through everything she does.
Growing up in the countryside, Zoe was fortunate to experience the true delight of fresh produce. This upbringing instilled in her a deep appreciation for the impact that food can have on our overall well-being. She also developed a love for horse-riding, dancing, and gymnastics, further emphasising the importance of physical activity and movement in a child’s life.
Zoe firmly believes that nutrition plays a crucial role in a child’s mental and physical development. Proper nutrition affects their health, mood, energy levels, and focus, while also preventing the onset of many diseases later in life. She is well aware of the common nutrient deficiencies children face, such as vitamin B6, B12, folic acid, calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, and iodine.
In her role as Food Service Coordinator, Zoe aspires to create a positive environment centred around a variety of foods. By offering delicious, well-balanced meals, she aims to meet the specific nutritional needs of babies, toddlers, and children. Zoe understands that the eating habits children learn during their time at Creative Childcare Centre can significantly impact their lifelong relationship with food.
We encourage you to stop by the kitchen and say hello to Zoe whenever you have the chance. She is always eager to connect with parents, answer any questions you may have, and discuss the importance of nutrition in a child’s life. Zoe’s friendly and approachable demeanour ensures that she is not just a coordinator but a valuable resource and friend to all.
At Creative Childcare Centre, we are thrilled to have Zoe on board, as she will play an integral role in nurturing our children’s well-being. Her dedication to providing nutritious meals and promoting a positive food environment is truly commendable. Together, let’s create a foundation for healthy habits that will benefit our children for years to come.
We look forward to the exciting journey ahead with Zoe and the rest of our amazing team at
Creative Childcare Centre
in Hamilton, Kotara, and Hunter Street, Newcastle.
