Menus

IMG_20170331_160806At Woodlands Nursery we provide a well-balanced menu with meals freshly prepared everyday by our Nursery cook. We cater for all cultural and dietary needs of individual children, including any food allergies.

We offer breakfast daily between the times of 8:00 and 9:00 where the children are given a choice of different cereals.

A snack is provided at 10:00 throughout the nursery and then again at 2:00 for the toddlers and preschool children. Fruit will always be offered alongside a breadstick, rice cake or biscuit for example.

Meal times are social occasions where children learn important skills. The staff team encourage good table manners and help the children to become independent using cutlery, serving their own food and pouring their own drinks.

Through the varied menus and the children’s weekly opportunities for cooking we encourage the children in our care to become aware of healthy eating and to try new foods.

The children are encouraged to make their own choice and decisions about food and drinks. Parents are informed each day, on what their child has eaten, via the Early Years Diary.
