Food is freshly cooked on the nursery
premises by our experienced cook Fran Ditchfield. The children love Fran's food and copies of her recipes are often included in our newsletters. This helps us encourage healthy eating among the children.
Meal and snack times are a social occasion and children have the opportunity to chat with each other and our staff. We also use these times as a way of supporting the children to make healthy choices, talk about where food comes from and experience different tastes from around the world.
We have developed our nursery gardens to include fruit, vegetable and herb plots. Children learn that plants need sunshine and water to grow and need to be cared for. They enjoy harvesting and tasting the food they have grown during snack and meal times.
