Children's Meals

The children's meals are prepared and cooked on site daily by our qualified Nursery Chef. The meals are balanced and include all food groups, fresh food is delivered twice a week. A food safety book is filled in daily recording deliveries, food temperatures, and any procedures that need to be followed.

The menus are varied over a 4 weekly cycle and changed seasonally. Dietary requirements are discussed when enrolling your child into the nursery. We can cater for any dietary needs.

All children come together around the tables in the rooms they are based in using this time as a sociable and interactive experience. We encourage children to help themselves to the food and gain independence and make their own choices.
