“Home cooked nutritious, delicious meals serving fresh fruit and vegetables daily”

Meals and Snacks
As part of our all-inclusive approach, we provide a full range of meals, snacks and drinks for your child during their day at our nursery. A typical day will include:

breakfast (7.00 a.m. to 8.00a.m.)
snack (9.30 a.m.)
lunch (11.30 a.m.)
Afternoon Snack (2.00.p.m.)
and afternoon tea (4.00.p.m.)

We believe that eating healthily is extremely important in the development of young children. We recognise that children should be able to enjoy food as well as learn good behaviours for the future.

We acknowledge that sugary foods and drinks, fatty foods or foods containing additives are almost unavoidable in the modern diet. However we have tried our best to plan our menus to minimise these influences and encourage enjoyment of a wide range of foods, including organic and multi-cultural produce.

Important Note – Menu choices will be offered to all children taking into account their dietary requirements entered into the care plan (vegetarian, lactose free, wheat free, gluten free etc) and also taking into account each child’s ability to chew and digest food that is not in a liquid or pureed form. Apart from the information in the care plan, please let us know as your child progresses if there are any changes to dietary needs. Fresh fruit or yogurts can be offered as alternatives to our dessert menu. From time to time we may need to substitute menu choices. All food is prepared and cooked on the premises. We make every effort to minimise or eliminate additives, preservatives and pre-processed ingredients. We welcome any suggestions from parents, carers and staff on ways to improve our menu. Tea is served at 4.p.m. to allow for early collections and those parents wanting to have an evening meal with their children after nursery.
