Meals and Diet
Healthy minds, healthy bodies and healthy appetites
Our mealtimes are a social occasion and an opportunity to learn. Children sit in small groups with a member of our team who encourage them to try new things, engage them in conversation and, most importantly, lead by example. As the children grow and develop, where possible, we encourage self-service by the children at the table.
We take our responsibility to serve healthy, balanced and nutritious meals very seriously.
We offer a wide variety of food from all the key food groups. Poor eating habits can develop early; so we hope by exposing children to a wide and varied diet we can prevent this from happening. We serve three meals each day with an additional snack of fresh fruit or vegetable sticks mid-morning and around 5pm. Our nutritionally balanced menus are prepared fresh daily by our dedicated cooks who use fresh local produce wherever possible – delivered to our door. Children have access to fresh water throughout the day with milk being served at mealtimes. All our children have their own cup or drinking bottle which is to hand at all times.
