At Vale Street Nursery, we believe that a healthy balanced diet is essential for growth and development. Freshly cooked every day in our own kitchen.
Fresh home-cooked food
Our delicious meals are prepared each day using fresh ingredients by our Chef. Our menus are planned with careful consideration given to salt and sugar content, as well as catering for all dietary requirements. We have a four week rotation on our menus which means your child will be exposed to a wide repertoire of food types and meals, helping to develop their palette and appreciate a broad range of textures, tastes and smells.
The staff in our baby rooms are fully trained and ready to assist parents when it comes to weaning. Until that point, babies drink their own formula, pre-made and labelled by parents at home and brought to our nursery.
Healthy Snacks & Drinks
A range of healthy snacks are available throughout the day, with older children having access to ‘snack stations’, teaching independence and self-selection.
Water and milk are available at all mealtimes and throughout the day in child- accessible places from bottles labelled with names or photos, depending on the child’s age.
We work in partnership with parents to ensure that the medical, cultural and dietary needs of children are met. We will help children to learn about a range of food, cultural approaches to meal times and eating and to respect the differences among them.
We also have a 5 star food hygiene rating.
