Since 2017 we have been working with a nutritionist to develop our menus.
Our 4-week menus ensure that food is not only nutritious but delicious, with exciting flavours to help develop children’s’ pallets.
By following ‘Eat Better Start Better’ government guidelines we ensure that dishes are low in salt and sugar, and that children are receiving enough energy from their food. We work hard to provide fruit and milk-based desserts so that children do not get accustomed to very sweet foods. Our staff follow advice on portion sizes and presentation of the food.
Our best critics are the children themselves! Before any menu is launched it is sampled by children and staff to gain feedback. Having a talented nursery cook means that we can be as flexible as needed.
Tailoring menus to ensure that food is safe in respect of the 14 known allergens, we can give you confidence that our meals can comply if your child has food allergies or dietary requirements.
We are also keen to support dietary variety, exposing children to different tastes and textures. By trying more plant-based meals; built around beans, lentils, vegetables and whole grains we can introduce the health benefits of eating less meat and can also be more environmentally friendly.
