At Little Lamps Nursery we are committed to providing children with healthy and freshly cooked wholesome food. We have also incorporated feedback from our parents via our Annual Parent Surveys, popular choices of the children, and input from ‘Yum Yum food company’. We have three weekly rotational menus for every season allowing children to taste a wide variety of foods whilst keeping them excited about mealtimes and support positive associations with food and healthy choices.
Each meal is strictly Lacto- vegetarian option, all allergens highlighted, and is accompanied by a detailed nutritional breakdown for staff to view before serving the meals. The weekly menus are uploaded on Tapestry and displayed in the rooms. We encourage children to eat a wide variety of foods.
Our staff sit down together with the children to have a meal and role model and promote good table manners so that children quickly grasp key skills and food etiquette for example washing hands, setting the table, serving themselves, sharing conversation, and clearing away afterward. The children are supported with eating where necessary, yet given full encouragement to be as independent as possible.
Little Lamps Nursery offers breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks. The cost of this is included in our fees. During the day the children will have breakfast between 8:00 am and 9:00 am consisting of toast, various cereals, and milk, lunch, and dessert at 11:30 am and afternoon snack at 2:30 pm. Our healthy snacks consisting of fruit/dried fruit, crackers, or rice cakes.
If your child has any special dietary needs based on medical/allergy conditions, religious or cultural requirements, please just let us know and we will be happy to discuss this with you and accommodate your child’s individual needs.
