Children are more active, responsive and open to learning when their dietary needs are met. That is why we take this part of our service very seriously. But we also love food! And we want to encourage our children to have the same love and interest in healthy, tasty food as we do. All meals and snacks are prepared on premises which means that we know exactly what goes into every dish. Our menu is full of healthy, tasty meals from around the world and has been devised following the guidance from The Children’s Food Trust to ensure that we meet all guidelines on nutritional standards and portion sizes for children. But just as importantly – it all tastes really good! Alternative meals are prepared for children with special dietary requirements and we have robust procedures in place to support this. Our mealtimes are relaxed and sociable times, where we encourage the development of physical and social skills, such as how to use cutlery and the enjoyment of conversation around the table with adults and each other.
