We understand the pressures of life and time constraint on working families. You can rest assured, whilst your children are in our care we will be providing them with the best nutrition to benefit their growth and well being. We will provide opportunities for your children to learn about where food comes from (on our soon to establish allotment), preparing snacks and cold cooking sessions, and teaching them life skills such as etiquette at the dinner table, self serving, and managing portion sizes. We will also be teaching children how to live a life of recycling.
We provide all meals for your convenience on a 3-week rotation.
We also provide baby milk (Aptamil 1) and weaning foods.
All meals are prepared on-site by our cook and we offer a Spring/Summer and Autumn/ Winter menu with diverse options. We aim to ensure your child is exposed to a wide selection of foods, helping to develop their palette and appreciate a broad range of textures, tastes and smells.
We ensure we provide a well balanced diet to ensure your children get the right levels of nutrition required for their age and levels of engagement.
We also include herbs and spices for example cloves and cardamom which act as natural antiseptics to help boost the children’s immune systems.
We will provide water and milk throughout the day for your children which ensures they are receiving enough Calcium in their diets for strong and healthy bones.
We will also ensure our children obtain their recommended ‘5 a day’.
We will celebrate cultural festivals through our food, as well as celebrating your child’s birthdays with a mini party and a cake.
Our practitioners are all training to Level 2 Food Hygiene, Allergy aware and Nutrition.
Special Dietary Needs
Our partnership with parents will ensure that the medical, cultural, and dietary needs of children are met. We can cater for a wide range of special requirements with advanced notice and within our financial guidelines.
As part of our commitment to high quality care, we ensure that at least once a day we practice good oral hygiene with the children. By brushing their teeth.
