We have regular visits from the food and hygiene department and our cook attends regular health and safety courses. along with other members of the nursery staff. The control of preservatives is of paramount importance.

Meal times - Babies eat their own meals in a low chair and the older children sit together in small groups around a table. Children are encouraged to partake in the varied meals and snacks offered. Staff sit with the children for quiet company or conversation, which often reinforces the benefits of a heathy and balanced diet. We encourage children to enjoy their meal times in a calm and relaxed atmosphere.
