Patient meals and food outlets at Randwick

While food is delivered to your child's bedside if they are staying in hospital, we don't provide meals for parents or if you are here for a test, procedure or appointment.

There are multiple cafe's and take-away food outlets within the hospital and several supermarkets, restaurants and take away shops located on Belmore Road and High Street. 

Inpatient meals

Patients who are staying in the hospital receive a menu at the bedside and can choose their meals. They are delivered to your child on a tray and consist of basic, nutritious food.

We understand that the food is often different to home cooked meals, so you are welcome to bring in additional items from home as long as you comply with any dietary restrictions the doctors have requested. 

If your child is in hospital for a short stay, such as overnight, standard bedside meal ordering might not occur as the process takes some time to set up.

Dietary assistants and dietitians are available to answer your questions or help with any special dietary needs.

Please note: 

  • Never give food or drink to your child if there is a ‘Nil by Mouth’ or ‘NBM’ notice on the bed. This could be dangerous for your child. 
  • Never give food or drink to any child other than your own.
