A fresh and healthy new café has opened at KidsTown these school holidays.
The Dig In Café features an all new menu focusing on healthy eating and encouraging children, parents or their carers to eat a rainbow every day. Designed with the help of local nutritionist and mum, Mel Hall, the Dig In menu has been designed to make healthy eating fun.
Not only celebrating all the fabulous fresh produce available to us here in the Goulburn Valley, the café fit out also draws its inspiration from the many families, businesses and volunteers that have been involved in the creation and on-going operation of KidsTown since its inception back in 1995.
KidsTown coordinator, Tracey Toy said, “We wanted to celebrate the incredible efforts of the community and local orchardists in really putting the Goulburn Valley and KidsTown on the map. The timber panelling has been rescued from the original fruit bin maze that was built by volunteers in the very beginning. Our incredible operations team have repurposed it into hand crafted merchandise gondolas and the café counter fronts.”
The Dig In Café is open every day during the school holidays from 9.30am until 4pm and offers a range of healthy and fun hot and cold food, coffee, drinks and snacks. The Café also features an all new range of kids merchandise and gifts including train hats and whistles, kitchen gardening packs, kid friendly recipe books and cooking equipment and wooden toys.
KidsTown is open from dawn to dusk every day of the year and entry is by gold coin. KidsTown will be hosting its annual ‘Easter Eggstravaganza’ on Tuesday, April 11, Wednesday, April 12 and Thursday, April 13 with Easter egg hunts for both younger and older children.

KidsTown and the Dig In Café are proudly provided by the Greater Shepparton City Council and can be found at 7287 Midland Highway, Mooroopna.
