We provide a healthy breakfast, lunch, tea as well as an early evening snack and drinks as we believe a healthy and well-balanced diet is essential to a child’s education.
Every opportunity is taken to talk about and demonstrate healthy food choices and to encourage children to eat well and learn about food. Mealtimes are sociable where good table manners and children’s independence is gently encouraged. Children help to lay the table, serve the food, clear away and wipe their own table. Adults sit together with all the children and take this perfect opportunity to chat and socialise.
Our wonderful cooks provide fresh, seasonal menus that reflect the diversity of culture and tastes of the children and meet the requirements as set out in the Children’s Food Trust which way exceeds the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage. We offer a 3 weekly Summer and Winter Menu; which parents are invited to contribute fully to our menu planning to ensure all children’s dietary needs and preferences are considered.
All of our meals are freshly prepared on the premises and designed to be full of nutrition and flavour. We never give children raw egg, nut products, sweetened or soft drinks or processed food. Milk and fresh drinking water are always available. Salt is never added to any of our food.
All of our nurseries have been awarded 5 stars by the Food Standards Agency.
