Nutritionally, traceable, balanced meals are freshly prepared daily on the premises using locally sourced ingredients by our full time qualified chef.
The menus are displayed each week on the website. The menus rotate over a four-week period to give variety and are changed termly.
All ingredients used to prepare daily meals contain low sugar and salt. We cater for special diets e.g. (culture, religion, vegetarians and allergies.)
Mealtimes are supervised, the children eat together with the staff at stacks day nursery. As with every aspect of your Child’s care this provides an opportunity for social interaction between children and staff allowing stimulating questions to be asked, we believe meal times are an ideal time for teaching and learning.
Breakfast – between 7.30am – 8 am
Lunch – 12.15 am
Tea – 4.30pm
Water, milk and fruit are provided throughout the day and available for older children to access themselves at all times.
Mealtimes are also a time to:
Promote healthy eating.
Raise awareness of cultural foods, promoting understanding and diversity.
Improve children’s eating experiences and their social skills.
Encourage children to sample new foods with a variety of tastes and textures.
Talk about meals and food everyone has at home.
