Nutrition

 

We strive to offer only the best for our kids, uncompromising quality in everything we do, especially their nutrition and health!

 

Organic gourmet ingredients are used to create well balanced meals and snacks to be offered in line with the Health Canada Guide and Recommendations.

 

Our meals and snacks are homemade and prepared daily by our experienced nutritionist using a wide range of colorful palate from different high quality meats, fish, fresh vegetables, seasonal fruits and whole wheat ingredients.

 

Our Menus will be rotated on a monthly basis depending on the season and the available fresh ingredients. No artificial coloring or sugars are permitted in our daycare, only ingredients derived naturally.

 

Morning and afternoon snacks are provided as well as a freshly prepared hot lunch. We also tailor our menus to serve vegetarian meals and cater to children with specific food & dairy allergies.

Our Chef

 

Talents123 is very pleased to welcome our new head Chef, Kali Mackell.

Kali graduated from the Culinary Arts Program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in 2006, soon later moving West to British Columbia where she completed her Certification as a Red Seal Chef.

A vegan herself, her profound passion and understanding of food and cooking, in conjunction with her knowledge in health and wellness is a great addition to our team members. Throughout her career she worked with inspirational chefs who taught her that the best food comes from the best ingredients. She is very excited to have the opportunity to serve healthy meals to the clients of Talents123 with the best organic ingredients available.

Kali possesses a passion and appreciation for food that was further heightened during the year she spent living and traveling throughout Africa. Food security and sustainability are topics that remain a driving force to her practice as a plant based chef. She believes that educating each other on responsible and sustainable eating practices are mandatory for personal and global health.

Having spent many years cooking in restaurants and catering for countless private parties, she also had the opportunity to cater for celebrities, most notably at the 2010 Western Canadian Music Awards.

Teaching cooking classes and holding nutritional seminars have kept her busy within the community but it is within Talents123 that she will share her knowledge of food and nutrition.

Kali completed Canada's leading program in Natural Nutrition through CSNN (Canadian School of Natural Nutrition) and now offers private consultations as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. Her profound passion and understanding of food and cooking, in conjunction with her knowledge in health and wellness will provide an indispensable experience for you and your children on this journey to better health.
