Food and nutrition

Tasty food can also be nutritious food. We are committed to educating and encouraging our children to eat a balanced and varied diet. We believe that giving them healthy options from the start will encourage them to eat healthily later on in life.

We cook up lots of different familiar and exciting new tastes to explore from around the world. Our menu board in the hallway is updated every day and all of our food is prepared and cooked daily in a modern, on-site kitchen by our two talented chefs. Our catering staff are fussy about cleanliness and we have a 5-star Food Hygiene rating ­– the top award given by the Government’s Food Standards Agency – to prove it.

We also ensure that the children have plenty of fresh water throughout the day. The older children are encouraged to help themselves to drinks and they love helping the staff give drinks to the younger ones.

Special dietary requirements and cakes

At your child’s settling in visits, we will find out if they have any dietary needs or food allergies. We use food preference charts in all areas, a coloured plate system and individual children’s place mats to make sure every child’s diet is correct.

We offer fresh, home cooked meals and a well-balanced diet to all our children. We can offer alternatives to those children that have special dietary requirements such as allergies, or vegetarian diets and where possible we will have meals for children with preferences.

Should you wish, we also offer a cake making service. For a small fee we will bake and decorate a traybake birthday cake for your child’s (or even an adult’s).
