Adapting children's service menus around food shortages

Due to the recent food shortages resulting from grocery item stockpiling, early learning service providers are faced with the challenge of adapting their menus, working only with the ingredients they DO have.


To assist you with this tricky challenge, we've created a helpful video with menu hacks, ingredient swaps and other life-saving tips! 

 

The video, created by UnYucky Families - a food and communication consultancy for educators and families, aims to help you to continue serving healthy, delicious meals regardless of the current food shortages.

 

ACA will email members a copy of the accompanying guidance booklet to go with this presentation, which includes a transcript of the video & useful resource links.

If you are not an ACA member and would like a copy of this resource, you may like to contact your local ACA state body to discuss the benefits of ACA membership.
