Our commitment to healthy eating for young children stems from the belief that it is essential to provide the right nutrition to ensure your child grows and develops well whilst in our care.
Our healthy eating menus and recipes have all been nutritionally analysed to ensure they meet the “Eat Better, Start Better” voluntary guidelines. We are also the FIRST nursery group to be given the Children’s Food Trust seal of approval as well as receiving the Silver Food for Life Catering Mark by the Soil Association.
Healthy eating for young children – We now only use:
- Red Tractor Farm Assured meats – this ensures that all food has been farmed, processed and packed within the UK
- RSPCA Assured (was Freedom Food) meats
- Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable seafood
- Organic milk
- Free range eggs
Our food is all prepared on-site at our day nurseries and our cooks have all received training on allergies and intolerance’s. Our childcare practitioners want to offer you the best possible support, and are committed to working with you when it comes to your children’s eating and nutritional development.
All of our healthy eating recipes have been designed so that they can easily be adapted to suit young children following an allergy or vegetarian diet.
