Because we believe that a well-balanced diet aids children's learning all our meals are freshly cooked on the premises.
This allows us to provide opportunities for the children to experience a wide range of foods and styles of cooking, and enables us to meet individual dietary requirements. All our children are provided with breakfast, AM and PM snack, a two-course lunch and tea.
Our babies are offered a variety of food suitable for their stage of development: it may be made especially for them or from the nursery menu and pureed, mashed or chopped as appropriate.
By offering a wide selection of foods and snacks, we encourage children to appreciate and understand the importance of healthy eating.
In addition, We see meal time as happy, social occasions, involving the children in conversations at the table, whilst teaching good table manners e.g. "please" and "thank you" and using their cutlery appropriately.
