We have our own fully qualified cook who works full time at the nursery providing nutritious home-cooked meals for the children. All food is prepared on site daily using fresh ingredients; no processed or convenience foods are used. Our menus reflect foods from different cultures. We cater for a variety of diets including vegetarian, Halal and wheat and dairy free. Menus are planned over a four week cycle for spring/summer and autumn/winter.
The kitchen is inspected annually by an Environmental Health Officer and awarded a star rating. Currently, we have the maximum five star rating.
