Our meals are prepared on the premises using only fresh ingredients and seasonal vegetables.  Children with special dietary requirements will be catered for where realistically possible.

Our meals are carefully planned to meet the individual dietary and/or health needs of each child. All the meals are prepared by a qualified and fully trained cook ensuring that fresh fruit and vegetables are served daily.

Healthy eating is about getting a varied, balanced diet and enjoying lots of different foods. Meal and snack times are a social occasion where all the staff and children sit down together. We encourage the children to help prepare and serve food where practical.

We provide breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea each day and snacks mid-morning and mid- afternoon. Depending on your session time your child will be provided with the following meals.

Our menu:

Breakfast: a selection of cereals with milk or toast, porridge and seasonal fresh fruits

Lunch: Homemade fish/vegetable cakes with mash and vegetables, Homemade turkey/ quorn meatballs with rice and vegetables, Pasta bake with vegetables, Cottage pie

Dessert: Homemade banana bread cupcakes, yogurt and fruit/honey, homemade carrot cake, jelly and fruit
