Providing a balanced, healthy diet for your child requires both expertise and imagination, which is why our menus follow the Early Years guidelines from the Children's Food Trust. Using this guidance, we freshly prepare all our meals at our nurseries, ensuring our food is perfect for your child’s growing body and mind.
Good nutrition sits at the heart of our approach to a healthy lifestyle for your child. Not only do we believe it is essential for children’s natural growth, it’s central to their concentration, learning and development too, helping them get the most from their time at our nursery.
Eating is about more than food: it is a social event too, so the nursery’s practitioners join your child’s mealtimes. This encourages interaction between children, good table manners and development of social skills. It is also the ideal way to offer your child a little help if needed, answer their questions about food and praise their independence.
Your child’s transition to solid foods can be challenging, so we will work with you to choose the best time to introduce greater variety in their meals.
Using government guidelines, we use a three-stage programme for weaning, with menus tailored to each age group and varied every four weeks. This starts with pureed fruit and vegetables, meat and fish at about 9 months, and eventually protein sources like beans. By two years, children enjoy a varied, imaginative diet with salt and sugar kept to a minimum.
Our comprehensive Special Diet Procedure ensures every specific dietary need is met, with minimum fuss and maximum attention to each individual child, whether through medical, religious or other requirements.
All our food can be traced along its simple supply chain, which is backed by rigorous quality assurance processes.
