Snacks & Meals

A Healthy Snack is on offer each morning and afternoon. The selection includes fresh fruit, salad, vegetables, wholemeal bread/toast, pitta bread, wraps, tuna, cheese, crème fresh etc.  During snack time children are encouraged to exercise choice, appreciate the importance of a healthy diet and develop good table manners. 
Breakfast is offered to all morning session children who arrive in nursery by 8.45am.

A 2 course mid-day meal is available for children through the 1140 hours offer. Special diets can be catered for at both snack and lunch time where parents supply medical referrals.

Daily baking/cooking experiences are offered.  Each child will have the opportunity to make the recipe of the week from a small range of healthy options including bread, pizza, scones, vegetable soup etc.  Please check the Bakery basket daily in order to take home your child’s prepared food.  The School Fund weekly parental contribution meets the cost of most of the above activities. (See School Fund Agreement.)
