A freshly prepared meal is cooked on the premises by a trained cook and is provided for children as required. These meals are well balanced and nutritious. Special dietary needs are catered for e.g. vegetarian or food allergies. A weekly menu is posted on the nursery notice board. We actively encourage all children to adopt good eating habits, including sampling new and different foods, and appropriate table manners. All staff hold current food hygiene certificates.
Our kitchen is available for inspection by parents at all times. We have attained a Food Hygiene rating of 5. We have a 'Gold' standard in the Essex Healthy Life 'Healthy Eating' Award scheme. Meal times vary for our youngest children whose normal routine is maintained.
