Healthy Eating

We encourage meal times to be social occasions and aim to promote children's independence and confidence during the mealtime periods by their serving and feeding themselves although staff are always present to offer and give assistance where it is needed. 
 
We provide a well balanced and nutritious variety of meals and snacks throughout the day and consider medical, allergy related, religious and cultural needs and individual preferences when planning menu's. Parents, children and staff are consulted in menu planning to ensure there is a variety of food to suit all and all food served is freshly cooked. Menu's are displayed for parents to view and a record is kept of each child's dietary intake.
 
Meals consist of breakfast, a morning snack , a midday lunch and a light snack tea. Water is available to children throughout the day, a daily milk drink is provided and pure unsweetened fruit juices are diluted 50/50 with water.
