Aussie childcare centre provides FREE takeaway meals for families – leaving thousands of mums stunned
- A childcare centre has created FOMO among Australian mums with dinner deal
- The centre in Geelong, Victoria, provides families with home cooked meals
- The family-sized meals can be ordered free of charge at the start of the week
Mums are calling for more childcare centres to provide their families with dinner options so they can spend evenings playing with their children instead of cooking.
The call for take-home dinners comes after an Australian mum revealed her daycare does just that – at no extra cost.
Amber Paul’s TikTok posts about the free meals from her child care centre in Geelong, Victoria quickly went viral inspiring parents around the globe.
Mums are calling for more childcare centres to provide their families with dinner options so they can spend evenings playing with their children.
It also sparked more mums to question their child care centre’s ability to provide hot meals four nights per week.
‘Bloody Megan needs to lift her game,’ one woman said of her child’s daycare educator.
While others said they had lobbied their kids’ carers and their partners.
‘Time to put Brad to work,’ one woman wrote on a post about the free meals.
‘Samara is going to the wrong daycare,’ one woman wrote, tagging her partner.
Amber, who appeared shocked when her video went viral, also shared examples of the menu which included creamy chicken soup, pasta bake and roast chicken.
Others revealed their centres make dinner for families, but not all of them do it for free.
‘Ours provides them for a very low price,’ one mum said.
While some child care centre bosses got in first, tagging their hungriest mums and dads.

‘Thought I would tag you before any of you saw this to tag me and before you ask… no,’ one woman said.
The menu for the week is given to parents in advance, giving them the option to pick the days, if any, they would like their dinner to be made for them.
The families of all 120 children at the centre are offered the nightly meal.
‘It’s for us parents to eat dinner so we can spend the evening playing with our baby instead of cooking,’ the mum said.
The centre has been dubbed ‘the Holy Grail of supportive childcare centres’ by popular blog, Mum central.
