The YamDaisy Project is all about the food.
It is the everyday delicious food that comforts you, touches your heart, and keeps you coming back for more.
In 2009 the Great Comfort Food Poll asked: Imagine you have come home tired, sick and miserable and the Fabulous Food Fairy says “Sit yourself down while I make you a delicious, comforting meal, What would you like?”
Overwhelmingly people chose delicious, nourishing soups, scrumptious bakes, tasty stews and heart warming pasta dishes. These are the kinds of dishes that will make up the Yam Daisy menu.
How can a small YamDaisy Cafe provide this food to the community? The answer lies in the small menu, the fresh, seasonal ingredients, and wonderful chefs!
Healthy Food Guidelines
Because we want customers of YamDaisy Cafes to be confident that they are eating healthy meals, we follow the Australian Dietary Guidelines. We will make sure there is information available to customers about the nutrition of the food they are buying, portion sizes, and about healthy eating generally. We will build in accountability to keep the highest standards.
We want this to be so good, that doctors and other health professionals can recommend YamDaisy meals to their clients who are finding it hard to manage healthy, everyday meals.
We will also do research to see if YamDaisy Cafes do make a difference to the health and quality of life of individual members, and the community.
