Food & Nutrition

Our nursery makes snacks and meals a social time during which children and adults take the opportunity eat together. The children learn about table manners and they enjoy eating in a social setting. The children also help to clear away after mealtimes which gives them a sense of responsibility and helps them to become independent.

We are committed to promoting the health and well-being of children and have an excellent cook who prepares freshly cooked food daily on the premises. We use minimal salt and sugar which contributes to a healthy and nutritious diet.

The seasonal menus are rotated on a four weekly basis, and can be adapted to suit your child's dietary needs.

Healthy snacks are provided throughout the day for your little ones to top up their energy levels! In addition, milk, water and fresh fruit are always available at the café bars.

Children are encouraged to help with the preparation of meals and snacks wherever possible. They grow fruits and vegetables in the outdoor growing area, promoting their awareness and understanding of healthy eating. The fresh fruit and vegetables are then used by our cook when she prepares the meals.
