Food and nutrition are important to us and we know that a healthy balanced diet is essential to your child’s growth and development. Every day is an opportunity for us to satisfy your child’s appetite with delicious and nutritious meals and snacks, designed with their needs in mind, with a menu planned to broaden their food experiences.

We aim to provide fresh balanced meals to all children at each meal or snack time. A choice of fresh fruit is available at snack times, morning and afternoon. We also cater for all dietary requirements and preferences.

  • Fresh water is available to the children at all times and no squash is served.
  • Breakfast consists of a variety of non-sugared cereals and wholemeal toast/crumpets or pancakes and bananas.
  • Mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks consist of various fruits and a choice or either milk or water to drink.
  • Lunch is always a balanced hot meal with second course, cooked freshly on the premises by our dedicated nursery chef.
  • Tea is fresh, wholesome and balanced and includes a variety of choices including homemade soups, sandwiches/wraps and pasta meals.

Copies of our four week menus and recipes are available at the nursery and also displayed in our parents area. Example of our lunch menus:

Babies’ nutrition

At this age nutrition for your child and support for you go hand in hand as we work together to find your child’s feeding rhythm throughout their daytime with us and their night time and earlier mornings with you. We support both breastfeeding and formula feed with bottle feeds at nursery, delivered with comfort and care for their feeding and winding habits. When your babies are ready to experience solid food we will complement your efforts at home, working in partnership with you as your child experiences new tastes and textures.

Tweenies and Toddlers’ nutrition

Your tweenie or toddler’s food experiences are so important and at this age group, they really develop and secure many of their preferences. At this age we balance the opportunity to try new foods with the regularity and reliability of foods they already know and love, continuing to praise them for their food adventures, and giving them an abundance of time to enjoy these.

We delight in helping to create good habits, supporting mealtimes with learning and understanding about how foods help them and their bodies, helping them to make great food choices for life.

Preschoolers’ nutrition

Fuelling some of the most energetic beings on the planet is fun, and we love the challenge! A healthy balanced diet is essential to your child’s growth and development and at this stage, making sure they have the nutrition to match their desire to master the world.

Your preschooler will continue to learn and understand how foods help them and their bodies, helping them to make great food choices for life. At this age, your child will be a master of self-service with them creating their own portions, so they can display their appetite and tell us about their choice, with our guidance of course!
