We have taken every care to produce a healthy and varied menu, not just the main meals but for snack times as well.
We cater for all dietary, medical and lifestyle requirements, offering a healthy alternative, if necessary and also have experience of dealing with children who have allergies. We serve foods from different cultures, some of which your child will be familiar with, some will be a new experience to them. We encourage children to try all foods served in nursery and praise them accordingly when they do.
The menu is changed every quarter and we encourage you and your children to be involved with this. A questionnaire is sent home for you to complete and we discuss likes and dislikes in nursery with older children.
Daily Healthy Meals
We encourage children to eat healthily by offering a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables for a healthy snack and all daily meals contain different types of vegetables for them to try.
Children under 5 attending the nursery are entitled to receive milk free of charge 189 ml (1/3 pint) of milk for each day they attend for 2 hours or more. We encourage the children to drink fresh milk as it has a huge number of benefits for children’s health, supporting healthy bones and teeth.
Drinks of water will be offered regularly throughout the day.
Children are made aware that water is available at all times and each child has a named water bottle throughout the day.
Children will be assisted in obtaining a drink of water should they need help.
