Healthy Eating
We believe firmly in the importance of establishing balanced and healthy eating habits early on in life. A balanced diet is vital for a child’s growth and development. Eating habits formed in childhood have a tendency to be continued into adulthood, so if bad habits are formed they are likely to continue. We do this through having a healthy menu and through promoting understanding of healthy eating through the curriculum. The food our children eat affects every aspect of their lives: their mood, behaviour, growth, even their ability to concentrate. Good nutrition is vital to a child's health from building strong bones and teeth to the healthy development of internal organs and overall growth. All our food is healthy, tasty and cooked on site in well equipped kitchens by our friendly cooks! We use fresh, wholesome ingredients and source our meat from a local butcher. Our cooks work hard to produce food of an excellent standard that is always homemade.  We provide breakfast, morning snack, lunch and a light tea for the children. We can cater for a vegetarian diet and also for children with food allergies and intolerances. Fresh water is available for the children throughout the day and milk is served at morning snack. For our babies solid food is prepared to suit the individual needs of each child. We work in partnership with our parents when weaning starts and endeavour to follow whichever approach you have chosen; from a traditional style through to baby led weaning. We believe that meal-times should be a happy, sociable time where different, healthy foods are tasted and eating skills can be developed.
