We believe that mealtimes are a social occasion in which children learn to sit in small groups with an adult and share their food and together.
Our tasty meals are freshly prepared on the premises by our experienced cook to provide a healthy well balanced diet. We operate a 4 week seasonal rotating menu which is displayed on the nursery notice board. Introducing children to a variety of textures and flavours along with foods from different cultures widening their experiences of the world around them whilst enhancing their taste buds! We are happy to cater for specific allergy or dietary requirements that your child may have. For babies purees and formula milk is prepared on site, meals are adapted to suit baby’s individual stages of development, introducing a variety of tastes and textures.
Breakfast is served between 8am – 8.45am and consists of cereal, milk or fruit juice and toast. Lunch is served between 11.30am and 11.45am (depending on the age group) and consists of a hot two-course meal. Light afternoon high tea is served between 3.30pm –4.00pm (depending on the age group) and is either hot or cold.
The children are given water to drink with their meals and fruit is provided every day with one of the two meals. Milk is provided during the morning and afternoon for all children during snack time. Children play a large part in mealtimes they are encouraged to set the table for lunch. Children self- serve their own meals and socialise around the table together, manners are a big part of meal times and these are encouraged and role modelled by staff and are important skills required for life.
We are regularly inspected by environmental health ensuring that we comply with all food hygiene rules and regulations. You can rest assured that a five-star food hygiene certificate backs every meal.
