Drinks and meals are provided throughout the day and the cost of this is included within the fee. We provide breakfast, a two course lunch, and also an afternoon tea. We have our own fantastic cook who has been with us for over twelve years who creates many nutritional, healthy meals which include a wide variety of fruit and vegetables each day, all of which are freshly prepared on the premises. Any snacks provided are fresh fruit and yogurt. The only drinks available to the children are milk and water and we provide soya milk and lactose free milk to those children with allergies to cows’ milk.
Parents are informed each day exactly what food has been provided and how much their child has eaten. The weekly menu is rotated every four weeks and is on display throughout the nursery. We do welcome any suggestions and ideas from parents/carers as to any healthy meals your child enjoys at home so that we can incorporate them.
The younger children are offered regular drinks throughout the day, whilst the older children have free access to help themselves with child height sinks in the room and their own individual water bottle when outside.
As and when your baby is ready to begin weaning, they will be offered a wide variety of meals incorporating a range of fresh fruit and vegetables. Our experienced cook carefully prepares these meals to suit each baby’s stage of weaning, beginning on liquidised food then progressing gradually onto thicker consistency meals until your baby is happily eating solid foods. Our staff are more than happy to discuss weaning with you and will work closely with you throughout the process.
Food and Drink Allergies
If your baby or child already has allergies before commencing at nursery we will have already gleaned this information from you. If your baby or child develops an allergy to anything whilst attending nursery then please do let us know immediately so that we can cater for this.
Allergens and Intolerances - Please feel free to ask for allergen information, and about any of the ingredients used in the meals we provide.
It is absolutely vital that you inform us of any food allergies and intolerances that your child may have as soon as you become aware of them.
