Nutrition at Nurture Me Day Nursery

 

A balanced and nutritional diet for all our children

 

"Children's good health is given utmost priority. The food is freshly cooked on the premises and provides an excellent balance of nutrients for children's dietary requirements. " From our Ofsted report, April 2014.

 

At Nurture Me we know that discovering and tasting different foods is an important part of a child's development. Our aim is to provide a balanced and varied diet using home cooked food and fresh fruit and vegetables. Here we have included for you a typical weekly menu. If your child has a food intolerance/allergy or any special dietary requirements please come and talk to us. We will do everything we can to accommodate the dietary needs of your child.

We have a three week menu to ensure variety for the children. The menu offers them a balanced diet with all essentials for healthy growing bodies and bones. We have developed our menus with the assistance of a peadiatric nutritionalist who has come in to support the nursery with food choices for the children.
