Nutrition & Sample Menus

Our aim is to foster healthy eating in an environment where children are introduced to a wide and varied choice of foods. We cater for any special dietary requirements. Our food is prepared in the crèches where we fully comply with the Environmental Health Regulations.
 
Our menus are designed to provide a balanced and nutritious diet concentrating on fresh fruit and vegetables. We vary our menus and try to make mealtimes fun and interesting for the children, to educate their taste buds and introduce them to the flavours of healthy cooking.
 
On a practical note and from first hand experience, we find children will eat a much better diet when they observe their friends eating in a group setting.  Parents often cannot believe their children are eating fruit and vegetables!
 
We provide a choice of milk or water as an alternative to the wide variety of juices available, which is most unsuitable for children’s teeth. This is working exceptionally well and the children and parents are happy with the benefits.
