100 % Healthy Eating
Our nursery recognises that the food our children eat affects every aspect of their lives: their mood, behaviour, growth, even their ability to concentrate. Good nutrition is vital to a child’s health from building strong bones and teeth to the healthy development of internal organs and general growth.
All meals and snacks included in the price (funded 3-4 year olds pay a subsidy) !!!
Staff have attended the Food Hygiene Awareness course and renew this training on a 3-year rotation basis.
In-house food preparation
Our menus are based on 5 choices over 5 days and are displayed over 5 weeks. Each menu displays a traditional meal, a cultural meal, a vegetarian meal, a fish meal and also a fast food meal.
Our fully-trained cook offers a menu that contains all the necessary nutritional requirements each child needs, prepared on the premises, using fresh/local produce. Most dietary requirements can be catered for on an individual basis.
Kidderminster nursery children grow their own organic fruit and vegetables in their allotment, while learning about the food cycle, the environment and what are healthy foods and not so healthy foods. All the children participate in cooking activities and help to prepare the fresh fruit and vegetables for the morning and afternoon snack bar, therefore encouraging the children to taste different healthy foods.
We also adhere to strict health and safety procedures and regularly audit the nurseries to ensure that these policies and procedure are being adhered to.
Our nurseries are regularly inspected by the local environment authorities, to ensure we are meeting standards, and more recently have awarded the nursery with a 5* Certificate in support of this inspection.
Why not give it a go at home ?
What if my baby is on breast milk?
We encourage parents to bring expressed milk into the nursery in bottles labelled with your child’s name. This will be given to your child at the times you state and we will record how much your child has taken. Baby units are equipped with a nursing chair to enable breast feeding mothers to return to the nursery during the day to breast feed their own child if they wish.
