In the Kitchen

Overview

img1We believe that good eating habits in the early years are extremely important. All food is freshly prepared in the nursery by our own chefs. We provide well balanced meals including plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, all bought in from local suppliers.

Our aim is to promote healthy growth and bone structure by offering a balanced menu containing protein, complex carbohydrates and vitamins. We recognise our influence on children’s food intake and eating behaviour and we encourage our children to try new foods and to sit down at the table and share food together.

We at Little Scholars support any dietary requirement’s and work close with parents to ensure we support each individual childs requirements.

 

Below is a sample of our weekly menu. We provide a 2 course lunch and an afternoon snack and is updated weekly.

Each room has a fruit bowl which is kept stocked and children can eat fruit throughout the day.

Currently we are working from our 5 week rotated menu. Also available here to Download
