Meals at Great Child

Our main meal of the day is at lunchtime, between 11.30 am and 12.15 pm. All meals are cooked and prepared in our own kitchen. Children are also allowed to come with their pack lunches if the parents prefer it but we do not warm up food in the setting.

We ensure that children are offered a well-balanced and nutritious diet. There is always a vegetarian option and our menus are posted up in the entrance hall for you to see. The menus are changed weekly so that your child will get the opportunity to try a wide variety of foods. When your child begins attending Nursery you will be asked about their cultural background, dietary requirements, allergies and food preferences. We will cater for these requirements.

Meals are sociable occasions, adults and children get the chance to interact and enjoy their meal together. We always encourage children to serve and feed themselves using a spoon and a fork. As they get older we encourage them to use a knife. These are important skills that your child will practise daily.

In addition to our well balanced meals we provide healthy snacks during the day such as fruits, salad, cheese or crackers with fresh water and milk.
A sample menu is shown below, full menu plans area available for you to see either on your visit or in your welcome pack, if you have any questions at all, do not hesitate to ask.
