A good balanced diet is vital for children to develop healthily along with fresh air and regular exercise....

All meals will consist of a nutritious lunch and snacks. I believe in keeping sugar and salt content in food to a minimum, and use fresh food as often as possible. Children are taught the benefits of healthy eating.

Children are encourage to choose healthy options and to experiment by trying new foods from other cultures. Older children are encourage to help in the preparation of food and meals.

Children are never forced to finish what is on his/her plate, but are encouraged each child to try one or two bites of everything. Sometimes they are surprised by what they like! If a child refuses to eat their meal, there will be no food served until the next designated meal/snack time. 

All eating patterns will be communicated to the parents. 

Vegetarian meals can be made by using beans, lentils, soya mince, tofu or quorn in place of meats. 

Vegan menus will need to be provided by the parent/guardian.
