Mealtimes

We have our own Housekeeper, Wendy Lloyd, so we are able to offer meals to suit a wide range of dietary requirements.  We aim to make all meals and snacks healthy and nutritious with appropriate portion sizes for your child.

At mealtimes children sit together to encourage them to develop social skills and table manners.  The children are encouraged and supported to feed themselves and to pour their own drinks, to develop self-help skills.

Breakfast: A choice of a selection of cereals, fruit and toast

Lunch and Dinner: Please see our menus for a selection of meals offered.

Snacks: A snack bar is offered during the morning and afternoon sessions where children are offered a choice of two snacks which they are able to self select. Snacks are varied and options include naan bread, crackers, seasonal fruit, vegetables and dip etc.

At all mealtimes children are offered a choice of milk and water; water is available to every child throughout the day

Weaning: We are able to provide meals suitable for babies who are starting on solid foods, either following a pureed food diet or baby lead weaning depending on your preference. Please click HERE for a sample of our weaning menu.
