Meal Times

We know how important good quality, nutritious, healthy food is for growing and developing children. Fresh, healthy, varied and well-balanced meals (breakfast, lunch, tea and healthy snacks) are freshly prepared daily, by our Nursery Chef, Angela.

Only high quality meat, fish, vegetables and fruit are used, with additives and preservatives strictly controlled and any dietary and/or cultural requirements your child may have, catered for.

All food is prepared age appropriately for chewing and swallowing capabilities and menus are regularly rotated and re-designed; some samples from our collection are shown below. We have been awarded the highest score of 5 stars from the Food Standards Agency’s Food Hygiene rating scheme.

We emphasise the social aspect of meal times. The children sit at tables in small groups with a member of staff eating with them. Conversation is encouraged and the staff ensure that each child in the group has an opportunity to take part. The cutlery used is age appropriate and the older children may help themselves from serving dishes on the table.  Our younger children are provided with specially designed, low-level chairs.
