Healthy Eating

We promote a healthy eating policy and encourage children to try different foods to ensure a varied diet. We provide a nutritional breakfast, light snacks and tea. Our Onsite cook will prepare meals. Drinks are available at all times. Practitioners eat with the children to promote good social skills at meal times.  We use low salt and sugar alternatives where possible.

When you register your child you will be asked if they have any allergies to certain foods, if this is the case then we ask you to provide us with a photograph so that we can display it, along with the information in the kitchen for the cook to comply with.
