Food and Nutrition

 

Food and mealtimes are an important part of nursery life.  We are keen to give children a balanced diet and to encourage them to see eating as sociable, healthy and fun.

All meals are prepared and cooked on site each day.  We do not use salt in our cooking and try to use sugar sparingly.  All our menus contain a high proportion of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Vegetarian options are always available, and as far as possible, we are happy to cater for any other special dietary requirements.

During government funded sessions only a packed lunch and snack may be provided from home. Please note we do not have the facilities to refrigerate these and will not be able to heat food. We strongly encourage all children to take part in eating a healthy cooked meal together; learning to lay tables, serve dishes and try delicious new flavors!   

When it is time to wean your baby, we are here to follow your requirements and our baby staff can also give you advice and support.

Our meal times are currently Breakfast 7.30am-8.30am   Lunch 12.00noon-12.45pm and Tea 4.00pm-4.30pm

We also provide the children with a mid-morning snack and an afternoon snack.

 

Our Menu is  on a 3 week rotation. Please see the examples below.
