Good nutrition is the building block of a healthy, happy child. A
well-balanced diet of fruit and vegetables will be provided to
encourage good healthy eating habits; this food pattern is essential
in the early years. The menu is displayed in the baby room and in
the main nursery in the cloakroom.
Laura Court has made up the menus for the nursery she monitors and reviews the menus considering current national guidelines from the Care Inspectorate, Setting the table and Better eating and Better living.
We have seasonal menu’s that have a four-week plan in each of the Spring, Summer Autumn and Winter menus. We serve some Quorn product and fresh fish and seasonal vegetables. The menu is healthy and has a balance of main nutrients and ingredients that is essential for growth and development.
