We believe that mealtimes are a social event when children and adults should eat together. Menus are carefully planned to provide children with healthy, fresh and nutritionally balanced food. Please inform us of any dietary requirements your child might have and we will make sure these are met.
We understand that some children may be selective in what they eat and feel that a gentle but exciting approach to trying new healthy foods is essential.
We actively encourage and involve children by assisting them to grow their own produce in the nursery vegetable patch. This hands-on approach includes regular cooking and food preparation activities which promotes healthy eating and food hygiene.
To further encourage a healthy environment we ask every child in all rooms to bring a clearly labeled cup or bottle with fresh water in it, children are actively encouraged to help themselves and during hot weather or following physical activity they are reminded of the health benefits of drinking plenty.
