Nutrition

 

Mealtimes – We aim to:

  • Provide each child in our care a nutritious, healthy and seasonal menu
  • Involve and educate children, staff and parents as to the benefits of healthy eating

 

Mealtimes and snacks form an important part of our day and we recognise the value of healthy eating. By working in consultation with a Harley Street Nutritionist we provide a menu that throughout the day ensures children have sustained energy levels. We also have an 11 day rolling menu, ensuring children who only attend on certain days, have a meal that ensures the whole day is nutritionally balanced and the children are having the correct balance of foods such as dairy, fruit / veg and other main food groups.

 

We are enrolled in a project called the Eat Better Start Better programme for Early years settings.

Our menu is cooked from fresh produce daily and is published with a full list of ingredients used.

This allows us to cater for all dietary requirements including food intolerances.
