Helping fuel children's growing bodies


"We love the incorporation of the veggies into the dishes!

It's awesome knowing the children are receiving all their needed nutrients each day"

- Ainsley, Director, exceeding service


Junior by The Key to Goodness is a boutique, Sydney based food service specialising in fresh, nutritionally-balanced meals within the Early Years/ Childcare sector.

We believe food should not only be nutritious, it should also help to meet the social, cultural and educational needs of the children.


Our team is made up of childcare professionals, chefs and a nutritionist, all with the common goal to provide children with delicious, nutritionally balanced and nutrient- dense foods.

Our 4-week rotational menu covers morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, fresh fruit & veg.

All allergy needs are catered to. We adjust the seasonal menu to suit children's requirements, that way no child feels like they are missing out!

Our veggies are incorporated into the meals in a subtle way that won’t be obvious to fussy little eaters.

Compliance is covered with us, we take care of the constantly changing nutrition guidelines and kitchen regulations.

Our meals are easy to heat and prepare, which means less time in the kitchen and more time doing what educators do best, caring for your little ones!

Sources of added fat, sugar and salt are limited in all meals

"TKG Junior was a saviour when we were left without a cook. Any of our educators are able to prepare lunch, it's so simple and straight forward, plus has saved on wages as we haven't needed to replace our cook"
