Children have different nutritional needs to adults and as their bodies develop, these needs change. It is extremely important that the diets of young children are planned to be age appropriate to ensure they have the fuel to reach their potential.
Having a tasty, varied and nutritional diet from the outset helps develop a child’s palate, creating healthy habits that will last a life time.
Our hot meals are supplied by Local suppliers which the children can have at lunchtime and Tea time in the Apple room if they wish. They provide a wide range of nutritious, well balanced meals catering for all dietary requirements. Our partnership with Apetito ensures that our children get the best nutrition and health from the food we provide. The management team ensure allergen control and hygiene standards are maintained consistently achieving a 5/5 Food Hygiene Rating from the local council.
Our staff prepare all the food at snack times and tea and breakfast in addition to the food supplied by Local supplier for hot meals.
