At St. George’s Nursery we operate a healthy food policy and have achieved a healthy eating accreditation. Our menus have been devised with the help of a nutritionist and all meals are prepared daily on-site by our qualified and experienced cooks using fresh ingredients.
We consider meal times as a learning experience for our children, as they are able to enhance both their manners as well as skills such as social skills, interacting and bonding with both nursery staff and other children.
Furthermore, children are encouraged to serve their own meals and drinks, thus encouraging independence, and also the use of a knife and fork, thus improving their motor skills.
We also cater for various dietary requirements, and a vegetarian option is available daily. All of our cooks and staff are fully aware of all the staff and children’s allergens and excellent practices are in place to deal with these. Weekly menus are displayed on the parent’s notice board.
Depending on what stage young babies are within the weaning process, they may have a slightly different menu choice at times to the other children.
