Food & menus
We have a cook on site and the nursery provides a healthy, nutritious diet to all the children including breakfast, snacks, lunch and tea. Fresh, local, seasonal produce are used when available. The menu is vegetarian, but also includes fish.
Dietary needs will be met wherever possible, including catering for children who have special dietary requirements, cultural and religious preferences. We carefully monitor children with food allergies or intolerances to ensure we meet their dietary needs.
All menus are approved by a dietician from the Hackney Learning Trust who works closely with us on all aspects of the children’s food and nutrition to ensure we provide a healthy, balanced diet. Our menu rotates on a three-week cycle and is reviewed 2 – 3 times a year.
Our nurseries were awarded a certificate of excellence from The Children’s Food Trust, ‘Eat Better, Start Better’ programme, showing our commitment in helping children eat well, meeting the national school food standards and helping children make healthy choices.
