Food & Nutrition

Healthy well-balanced and nutritious food is provided for the children and is all prepared on site by our chef. We have obtained and maintained our Trafford Healthy settings award and ensure that meals meet all the children’s nutritional needs and have extensive experience dealing with food allergies and special dietary needs.

We want to encourage healthy eating by providing foods such as meat, fish, cheese, eggs, milk, wholemeal bread, pasta, rice, beans, fresh fruit and vegetables. The children do have homemade cake and biscuits which are always fruit based.  

Food additives, colours, flavourings, preservatives are avoided as much as possible. Water is also available throughout the day in each room.

Our baby foods are also home cooked on the premises. We take great care in giving your babies a well-balanced and varied diet consisting of purees of fish, meat and fresh vegetables as well as organic baby pasta and rice - all free from salt and sugar.

The garden area is used to teach the children where some of their food comes from, allowing them to grow vegetables and herbs which can then be cooked and eaten
