Health zone

Healthy eating takes centre stage when considering the wellbeing and development of young bodies and minds. We only use the best, fresh ingredients to make delicious meals that even the fussiest eaters enjoy! We source local meat and fish and have weekly deliveries from the butcher and fishmonger. We always use organic produce when possible.

We strive to make children aware of where food comes from, why it is important to have a healthy balanced diet and involve our children in growing and preparing food. We encourage parents to involve their children in making and sharing food as family eating is such a key part of a child’s development. We believe good food creates good health and a strong mind which helps children to learn, play and enjoy life.

Our food has been so successful with our children that parents asked us to share our recipes. We have gathered popular dishes from both nurseries into a small recipe book focusing on simple, delicious cooking that time strapped parents can whip up in a matter of minutes. As well as yummy dishes we provide information on seasonal produce, interesting food facts and advice on healthy eating and food allergies. You can help yourself to recipes from our book by clicking our Recipe of the Month!

We encourage independence during mealtimes through using a ‘rolling snack’ system which means that children can come to the snack table when they are ready and do not have to interrupt their play in order to eat. We make sure to provide children who have special dietary requirements with tasty alternatives.
