Healthy Eating

It is very important to us that all our children receive homemade, healthy, nutritious and tasty meals and snacks – every day.

A great deal of care is taken to develop a three weekly menu for the children. We also have a weaning menu and our baby food is prepared on site and advice is given to parents regarding weaning.

We try to give as much variety as we can to the children. New foods are initially tried on a small scale and if they are liked by the children then they will be introduced into the menu. If your child requires a special diet for cultural or dietary needs our cook will endeavour to liaise with you to ensure we provide the same foods as home.

Here is an example of our Autumn menu .
