Home cooked food is very important to us. Our food is cooked and prepared on site using locally sourced produce wherever possible. We currently buy our meat and eggs from Aune Valley Butchers in Loddiswell and (some) of our fruit and vegetables will be grown by the children in the garden.

We encourage all our little ones to eat a balanced diet, and to begin to know which foods are healthy and which are treats. We aim to produce food with low quantities of salt and sugar where possible, and we will not serve highly processed food.

We eat lunch as a family group, using china and proper cutlery. Our Staff eat with the children too to guide and help them as required. Children eating packed lunch are also welcomed and eat with everyone else.

A choice of milk or water is on offer at snack time, and water is available throughout the day including lunchtimes.

We can cater for children with allergies - please discuss any requirements with us.

Children can eat breakfast, snacks, lunch and high tea at the setting.

If your child would prefer a packed lunch then that is fine too. We would encourage parents to make sure they provide a balanced and healthy meal and if you would like any information about this please do ask.

Below are samples of our weekly menu. These are on display each week in our entrance porch. We may vary these menus depending upon availability of food and seasonal change. We have also indicated allergens on our menus.
