It’s all about being healthy…
Our dedicated catering team work hard to provide your children with an interesting, healthy and balanced diet. The nursery cooks have an in-depth understanding of nutrition and the important role it has on your children’s development. We like to keep the menus varied, seasonal and fresh ensuring your children get a tasty, nutritional and balanced diet at all times.
We never use salt, and minimize the use of sugar and other additives. Everything’s freshly prepared and absolutely delicious. As the food is prepared at the nursery it is easy for us to cater for any special dietary requirements.
The children are able to access a self-serve breakfast in Poppies and Daisies. Fresh fruit and vegetables are available as a free-flow mid-morning snack and included in our afternoon tea menu. We have a love of good food and aim to encourage the children to embrace healthy snacking habits. Milk and water is available to drink, and the children have free access to water throughout the day to ensure they are keeping suitably hydrated. At Baby Daisies the water is offered in labelled beakers with lids. At Daisies, the children have labelled cups and water jugs are available for them to serve themselves a drink when they want.
At Daisy Chain we also include fresh fruit and vegetables and food into the children’s role play area, to offer a realistic play experience and to help children familiarise themselves with various food types and textures.
At Baby Daisies we have our own milk kitchen. Our staff are trained to be able to sterilise equipment and prepare babies bottles. This is our preferred method if your child is on formula milk, firstly because it takes the pressure off yourself in having to prepare enough for the day; it also ensures that we are confident that your child is receiving a freshly prepared drink; and it ensures that we have enough for the day.
