At Archfield House Nursery we believe that healthy foods produce healthy, happy children and we believe that the quality of the food we serve has an essential part to play.
We are committed to serving healthy, balanced and nutritious foods that give your child all of the energy they need for a busy day of play, learning and development.
Menus are carefully planned, and a daily menu is displayed at the nursery. In addition to a balanced lunch, our children also tuck into a morning snack and afternoon tea.
Mealtimes are a sociable occasion and an opportunity to learn. We promote the children’s independence by encouraging them to feed themselves. Pre-school children serve up their own lunch and even clear away their own plates. We promote good manners and food etiquette as staff sit with the children and share stories and laughter.
Children learn about healthy eating in the nursery with various projects and topics that are covered. At mealtimes staff encourage children to try different foods and talk about the importance of eating healthy to grow up big and strong.
If your child has any special dietary needs based on medical/allergy conditions, religious, or cultural requirements, just let us know and our nursery chef will be happy to discuss this with you.
