Lunch

OUR FOOD MENU

All our food is freshly prepared on site by our level 2 food safety and hygiene qualified members of staff. 

Our menu offers our children a wide variety of healthy balanced snacks and lunches that meet the standards of the early year’s guidance, with reference to the, Eat Better Start Better guidance document. All foods are prepared safely in relation to food allergies and any special dietary needs can be catered for. Fresh milk and water are served with all meals. Also, snacks and water are available all day for children to freely access.

Meal times in our nursery are seen as a time for the children to be social and relaxed with each other, where healthy procedures such as hand washing and making healthy choices are promoted by staff members.

Tooth brushing

As part of our healthy eating routine in the nursery, we are also part of the Bolton-Brush Bus program, which helps promote children’s dental health in Bolton. All our children have their own toothbrush, which is stored in our ‘Brush Bus’ and they brush their teeth together after mealtimes.
