Healthy Eating

We believe healthy eating and physical activity are essential for the children in our care. Both elements provide children with the things they need for growth and development. We believe children develop healthy eating patterns from an early age. Therefore, we aim to ensure the food and eating patterns children are exposed to whilst in our care, are those which promote good attitudes to nutrition.

Our manager has been trained in Early Years Physical Activity and Nutrition.

All meals are prepared daily, on site, by our cook. Our menus are planned on a four week cycle and changed at least twice a year.

The menus balance children’s food intake across the day and foods which are offered are in line with the Children’s Food Trust’s Voluntary Food and Drink Guidelines for Early Years Settings in England. Click here to download the “Eat Better, Start Better” guide.
