Food & Nutrition
We believe our mealtimes should be happy, sociable times and children are encouraged to interact between themselves and with staff at these times.
We are committed to offering healthy, nutritious balanced meals and snacks which meet individual needs and requirements. We use the 'Eat better, start better' publication and guidelines to comply with the Early Years Foundation Stage welfare requirements.
All meals are cooked on the premises to ensure the quality and freshness is of the highest standard.
Every child will receive a Mid-Morning Snack accompanied by milk or water, a hot meal and pudding at Lunch Time followed by a Snack in the afternoon and then Tea
A sample of a weekly menu is presented below.
It is often said that 'Breakfast is the most important meal of the day'. For an additional charge we can provide your child with breakfast from 7.30am. We offer low sugar cereals, fruit and hot options including toast, omelettes and porridge. Water and milk are always available.
Please speak with the Nursery Manager if your child does require breakfast at the Nursery.
