Nutrition & Sample Menus

Our aim is to foster a healthy eating policy where children are introduced to a wide and varied choice of foods. We cater for any special diet 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 diet concentrating on fresh fruit and vegetables. We vary our menus and try to make them interesting to the child, to educate the Childs 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 cannot believe their children eat 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.
