Making sure that all children have well-balanced and healthy meals during the day is very important to us at our nursery. The nursery is inspected by Environmental Health Officers and has been awarded 5*.
Our qualified cook Linda is happy to cater for any dietary requirements and develops menus that change on a seasonal basis. Linda works with the children in our large vegetable plot and uses some of our own home grown produce, if it reaches the kitchen!
We offer morning snack, lunch and light afternoon tea with milk and water available all day.
Meal times are a relaxed and friendly time during which staff sit along-side children and encourage and support positive eating habits and children brush their teeth after lunch.
The children regularly take part in cooking activities using herbs and vegetables from our vegetable and herb patch and they chop and roll and squash and snip. They get covered in flour and all sorts of other food as they learn how to cook.
The children are always proud of what they make and our parents love to try it at the end of the day. All it takes is a little passion and some healthy ingredients to make a chef.
