Little Darlings Kitchen was born out of demand all because of a Greek grandmother, Yia Yia Mary, who has been cooking at her daughters child care centres, Little Darlings, since inception and getting kids to eat everything from black-eye beans to broccoli – without tantrums, and asking for more! The children of Little Darlings Child Care Centres in Sydney – Yia Yia’s tiny diners of 17 years now – have tried and tested her adult palate recipes and declared them delicious! So delicious, in fact, that their parents, keen to get their hands on Yia Yia’s secrets, have begged her for years to start selling her food. Parents were keen on our food because it meant stress free & guilt free mealtimes knowing that their kids would eat our food without fuss and would be getting a bowl full of natural & pure nutrition – loads of protein, vegetables, herbs & spices for their little growing bodies.

Current medical research shows that a healthy diet in early childhood helps guard against obesity, eating disorders and body image issues; but most importantly nourishes critical brain development during the first 5 years of life. As parents, we know how crucial it is to get it right in these tender first years so that healthy habits are made. With reference to more specific research, The most recent survey done by the Australian Bureau of Statistics discovered that “among children, it was estimated that less than 1% usually meet their recommended number of serves [of vegetables each day].” Mary’s daughter, early childhood educator and centre co-owner Marika, works with her to ensure that every meal she creates exceeds government guidelines on nutritional content.
