We are pleased to say that we have liaised with the Children’s Food Advisory Service who helped us to identify the ‘dirty dozen’ food additives. We then went through all our menus and food purchases to ensure that we were only providing meals that were clear of these additives. If you would like to know more then please visit www.childrensfood.org.

Our aim is to provide a good balance of healthy meals and snacks using fresh produce and cooked on the premises. We also include food from other countries in our weekly menus and use snack times to try out foods that the children may not have experienced before.

As well as encouraging healthy eating and developing the choices the children make with regard to their eating habits we also promote the importance of the social aspect of eating together.  The children eat main meals together with their key carers, they help to lay the tables, the older children serve their own meals, all children help to clear away once they have finished eating.
