Healthy children are happy children

The staff team are working together to ensure that we take a whole setting approach to health and wellbeing, including promoting physical development, nutrition, oral health, emotional wellbeing, and safety.

The benefits of childhood nutrition are enormous; a nutritious diet provides your child with good eating habits for life, healthy skin, a healthy weight and improved behaviour.

We provide nutritionally balanced meals to meet the needs of each age group. We ensure that all of the children receive the recommended daily allowance of protein, carbohydrates, healthy fats and fresh fruit and vegetables.  We stay away from refined and processed foods. Whole foods provide the children with the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that they need.

Our meals are currently provided by well-regarded local caterers.  However, we are refurbishing our kitchen and are excited to shortly be introducing our own menus which will be freshly prepared on the premises each day by our newly appointed Nursery chef.  Our new menus have been designed by the nursery chef and a paediatric dietician to meet the needs of each age group.

We cater for all allergies, intolerances, preferences, cultural and dietary needs.

 

Our nursery chef

Emma, our nursery chef is passionate about preparing healthy and delicious food for our children.  She prepares all our meals fresh on the premises each day and loves to see the children enjoying the meals she has prepared.
