Meals & Nutrition at Nursery

 

Both of our nurseries have achieved the Wigan Healthy Business award and have excellent food hygiene ratings.

 

We have our own chef who provides a well-balanced tasty menu of fresh home-cooked food including, breakfast, morning snacks, cooked lunch & desert, afternoon tea.

 

Our menus are compiled with consideration for a well balanced healthy diet and children's preferences for particular foods. At least two days a week our menu includes meat-free meals and we provide a daily alternative dishes for children with a vegetarian or special diet.

 

Meal and snack times are treated as a social occasion, where children are encouraged to observe good table manners whilst enjoying their food in the company of their friends and staff.

Pre-School children take turns each week to set up the dining arrangements for the nursery which gives the children responsibility and a sense of achievement - they love helping! We also encourage self serving, which teaches correct portion control and independent choice. 

Our nursery menu also incorporates international festivals and celebrations through out the year, such as Chinese foods for Chinese New Year.
