At children 1st Day Nursery, we strongly believe that a healthy, balanced diet is essential for growth and development in under 5’s. Our menus have been formulated to give your child the best start in life. Our onsite chef prepares a mouth-watering range of healthy, delicious meals. Catering for allergies and religious requirements. Mealtimes are an enjoyable and social occasion alongside a member of staff. The children are encouraged to serve themselves and try new dishes. Children are involved in the tidy up process e.g. scraping plates and putting cutlery away.
We have been awarded 5 stars for our Food Hygiene which reflect our high standard of practice. We always provide fresh, balanced meals to the children at each mealtime with a choice of fresh fruit at snack times.We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, to get our children off to flying start, we offer a variety of breakfast options. We also cater for babies that are being introduced to food for the first time – “Weaning. ”Throughout the day and at meal times we encourage the children to drink freshwater and as a rule, we do not offer flavoured juice as a mealtime drink.
Twice a month the children cook alongside our chef. Producing dishes such as salads, pizza, scones, biscuits, fruit kebabs and many more.
