Food & Drink

We aim to give children a relaxed social eating experience that promotes healthy food choices. Our food and drink policy will help support children to develop a balanced approach to food and promote holistic health benefits.

We hold an Outstanding Food Award from the Children’s Food Trust and have taken part in the Healthy Active Little Ones (HALO project) and its related HEPA project for the past three years ensuring that as a nursery we are doing all we can to help children grow up with the skills and knowledge to make healthy life choices.

Take a look at our range of leaflets for guidance and information on healthy eating:

Parents are required to provide their child with a packed lunch which conform to our Health Lunch Box Policy.

Water is offered to drink at all times of the day at our hydration station. Milk is offered at breakfast and snack times along with water and can be made available to children who will not drink water.

Fruit juices, squashes, smoothies and fizzy drinks are not permitted at nursery.

Please be aware we cannot re-heat any pre-prepared foods and we ask all parent/carers not to include any peanut or peanut based products in their child’s lunchboxes.
