We believe that a balanced diet and exercise is essential to the health and wellbeing of growing children. This is why we give nutrition great importance.
Meal times are social times, staff and children sit at the table together and enjoy good conversation, children are encouraged to serve themselves if able to, we help develop good eating habits by encouraging children to try new foods. This is an important activity as it develops language skills, choice, self-reliance and a positive attitude towards a healthy lifestyle.
We have a lovely trained chef who prepares all meals on sight with care, cleanliness and precision. Hygiene is given utmost importance, ensuring there is no cross contamination. We use fresh ingredients to prepare delicious meals each and every day.
Every child is different and therefore may have different needs. All our staff are confident in caring for children with allergies and intolerances. Our chef will prepare meals specifically to cater for any dietary requirements, whether you require vegetarian, vegan, halal, dairy free, etc.
We operate a four-weekly rotating seasonal menu. Our menus have been designed using the guidance provided by the Caroline Walker Trust for Healthy Eating in the Early Years. We ensure we contribute to the consumption of children’s 5 a day with plenty of fruit and vegetables included in our meals.Click here to see a sample menu
