Healthy body, healthy mind!
We offer 3 meals throughout the day and a mid morning and afternoon snack. All the energy your child will need to be active and engaged throughout their day of learning. Meal times are also a learning experience entirely, from the fine motor development of using knives and forks, to awareness of good manners and politeness. Meal times are fun for all and a great opportunity for nursery practitioners to bond with your child. They are sociable learning opportunities, where we teach children about good manners, different foods and how to feed themselves independently.
Our menus have been devised by a nutritionist and aim to provide fresh balanced meals comprised of organic ingredients, where possible, to all children at each meal or snack time. We also cater for specific dietary requirements.

The most important meal of the day! Breakfast is served in the morning and will be cereals (non-sugared) or porridge.
Here a selection of fresh fruits are served to give your children a healthy boost. A choice of milk or water will also be served.
The Lunch and Dinner menus offer two hot meals every day, with each day carefully crafted to provide a balance of the recommended food groups in your child’s diet. The recipe for each dish is carefully conceived to encourage a diverse palette of tastes, whilst teaching about the different food groups, origins of ingredients and promoting a healthy lifestyle.
Our Menus are devised with the help of a nutritionist to ensure that they contain a healthy balance of all the vitamins and nutrients, which help aid healthy growth and development in young children. The Food Standards Agencies “Eat Well Plate” is a good guide on portion sizes for young children.
