Rose is our very able Cook who joined us at the beginning of 2008, she came to us with a long history of cooking for children and has introduced many tasty, appetizing and nutritious dishes for us.
The children are provided with a healthy snack in the mornings and a hot, freshly prepared lunch and pudding.
In the afternoons the children are offered a plain biscuit and milk or water to keep them going until tea time. For tea all the children will, again, have a freshly prepared light meal with fruit or yogurt, all meals being served with milk or water.
We are currently using a different tea menu for our babies, using softer food that they enjoy more than the meals offered to the older children.
Meals are served whilst the children are sitting at properly laid tables as we teach and encourage, from an early age, the rudiments of good manners at all mealtimes.
For morning snack and afternoon tea staff are able to join in with their own healthy snack and drink, to sit with the children, to engage with them and promote table manners.
The local supermarkets and butchers are used for our supplies and Rose will collect fresh vegetables and fruit from the farm shop just down the road as and when needed. The children are also able to visit the farm shop to choose their own fruit and vegetables, making mealtimes very interesting.
We are able to cater for children with a variety of dietary needs, from allergies to a diabetic diet to allergies to nuts, strawberries, wheat, milk and eggs, please do contact us to discuss your child's dietary needs as we can be very flexible.
We have a carefully planned four-weekly rota of menus, that change with the seasons, a selection of which can be viewed here.
We do have slightly different choices for different ages, the menu's with DP are for the under twos - Duckling play room and Penguin play rooms,
the menu's with MP are over twos as in the Monkey playroom and pre-school
