We understand the importance of promoting healthy eating at an early age. We provide freshly-prepared meals that are both varied and nutritionally balanced. We limit sugary items and do not have crisps, sweets or fizzy drinks in the nursery. Our qualified Chef, Trevor Hill uses fresh produce wherever possible, and incorporates a wide range of fresh fruit and vegetables in his cooking. Vegetarian diets are catered for and Trevor works carefully with parents whose children have individual dietary needs.
A two-course hot lunch is served comprising either a starter and a main course or a main course and pudding. In the afternoon tea consists of sandwiches, a home-made cake or biscuit and fruit. Snacks of fruit and rusks are also served in the morning. The children are provided with water and organic milk to drink and bread and fruit are available should the children be hungry between meals. A weekly menu is posted in each cloakroom. Trevor also works with Polar room staff to introduce the children to food and healthy-eating topics including various sampling and tasting sessions.
