Meals and Nutrition
When considering nursery meals, we take inspiration from the Children's Food Trust - Eat Better, Start Better initiative, and also from the feedback we get from parents.
We offer a varied meal plan using fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as a good quality meat or protein source. We aim to incorporate a range of food textures, colours and smells for your children to try at every mealtime, and all meals are freshly prepared daily in our kitchens by our own cooks.
Meal selections will change from week to week to ensure that children attending part time still receive a variety of different meals. If your child has any special dietary requirements we are happy to discuss this with you.
A morning and afternoon snack is provided daily, one fruit selection and one carbohydrate in order to maintain a balanced diet. For example, a piece of fruit in the morning and a rice cake or crackers in the afternoon.
Mealtimes are a great opportunity for the children to socialise and develop good eating habits, learning basic table manners and the correct use of cutlery - all in a relaxed but organised manner.
