We involve children in the preparation and serving snack in their groups which will support independence and self-help skills along with a sense of belonging. We have a qualified nursery chef on the premises who provides nutritional and balanced meals for the children. She also attends regular training to keep up to date with current food requirements. She has received a level 2 award for food hygiene, along with one other member of staff, and has attended the ‘Understanding food allergens and intolerance’s’ course. All staff have completed an allergy awareness online course.
Nursery lunches will follow a healthy balanced rolling menu (4 weekly), we have a summer and winter menu. These are reviewed and updated regularly by our chef who understands the nutritional needs of young children. The chef provides the children with homemade cooked meals made with fresh produce.
