Many of you will already know that here at Toad Hall we are committed to providing a top-quality healthy menu which gives the children the nutrition they need and gives you the reassurance that we’ve got their dietary needs covered when they’re with us.
We’re so passionate about it that we had our summer menu tested by the Children’s Food Trust and were very proud to become the first childcare provider in the country to win their seal of approval.
We also decided to work towards the Soil Association’s Food for Life Catering Mark, which is recognised by the DfE as a national framework for raising standards in school and nursery meals. We currently hold their silver award which guarantees that:
- 75 per cent of our food is fresh each day
- 5% of our spend is on organic foods
- all our food is ethically sourced
- all food is environmentally friendly
Our actual standards exceed these requirements and we are confident that we will be able to gain their gold award in due course.
Our commitment to great quality food and our journey towards meeting the high goals we have set ourselves is featured in the current issue of Nursery Management Today (NMT) magazine.
