Nutrition

Healthy children are happy children

The staff team are working together to ensure that we take a whole setting approach to health and wellbeing, including promoting physical development, nutrition, oral health, emotional wellbeing, and safety.

The benefits of childhood nutrition are enormous; a nutritious diet provides your child with good eating habits for life, healthy skin, a healthy weight and improved behaviour.

We provide nutritionally balanced, home-cooked meals, designed and reviewed by a nutritionist to meet the needs of each age range. We ensure that all of the children receive the recommended daily allowance of protein, carbohydrates, healthy fats and fresh fruit and vegetables. Our recipes are made fresh with whole foods such as whole grain pastas, rice and bread, fruit and vegetables, dark leafy greens and legumes.

We stay away from refined and processed foods. Whole foods provide the children with the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that they need.

We cater for all allergies, intolerances, preferences, cultural and dietary needs.

Our nursery chef

James is our Nursery Chef.   He enjoys cooking new recipes using fresh ingredients. James finds it so rewarding seeing the children enjoying the food he has prepared for them. During his busy week he takes time out of the kitchen to interact with the children and help them to create their own dishes during the Cookery Club activities.  In James’ spare time he enjoys going to the gym and playing football. He especially enjoys watching cookery shows!
