Try our KidsHQ SuperMeals!
KidsHQ SuperMeals are frozen take-home meals, made at Parnell Early Childhood Centre each week. They're perfect for growing children, and great for adults too!
Winning four *Gold Healthy Heart awards inspired Parnell Community Trust to create the range of heart-healthy meals in 2015. Initially made to meet demand from busy parents of children at the Trust’s Parnell and Gladstone Park Early Childhood Centres, the take-home frozen meals were a hit.
Parents love having healthy meals their kids love to eat on hand when they don’t have the time to prepare something themselves. Now our super nutritious meals are available to the wider community, and they are proving a hit with adults too.
*Our centres have now won a total of five Gold Healthy Heart awards
