Healthy Food

Mealtimes are happy!

We have an on-site chef who prepares our healthy, balanced, nutritious meals. Chef will work alongside a child's keyworker to ensure dietary needs are met and careful consideration is given to allergies and weaning requirements. 

Our menus are healthy, nutritious and child-friendly! Our aim is to ensure your child enjoys their meals whilst with us and has a balanced healthy diet.

 

Each month we offer the children a little treat by holding a "children's choice lunch" but we always offer a fruit platter alongside to ensure we maintain our healthy eating approach!

Teeth Cleaning

As part of our commitment to good oral health, we encourage the children to clean their teeth once during their session.

 

Each child has their own toothbrush and these are hygienically stored in Brush Buses in your child’s playroom. Younger children are supported by staff to clean their teeth, older children or when the child is ready, are encouraged to carry out this life skill independently. 

Fluoride toothpaste is used and contains the recommended amount of fluoride for children.

 

All staff have been trained in Dental Hygiene.
