Healthy, fresh and exciting...

At Noah's Nursery we understand the importance of good nutrition. We acknowledge that the children are growing at a considerable rate during their early years and it is imperative that they are getting the correct nutrients essential for healthy growth and development.

We aim to support this by providing healthy, interesting, varied and delicious foods. A diet rich in iron, calcium, fruit, vegetables and the right balance of carbohydrates, protein, diary and refined foods.

We have a purpose built kitchen where meals are produced daily using as much fresh and local produce as possible.

We have structured our breakfast, lunch and tea menus to incorporate an exciting range of foods offering healthy versions of your child's favourite meals and adding in new flavours for them to try.

All of our ingredients and meal combinations carefully consider the levels of saturated and trans fats in order to keep the 'bad' fats to a minimum. We have dietician input to help ensure that our menu is varied and nutritious. We work from a three week rotational menu and your child is welcome to mix and match nursery meals with their own packed lunches; whatever suits your and their needs best.

As part of our inclusive practice we welcome children whatever their nutritional needs or preferences; we are used to catering for particular dietary needs or working within the framework of allergy sufferers, as such we have a strict no nut/kiwi/egg policy.

Anyone for snack?

At snack times the children share the fruit and vegetables they have brought in from home to share with their friends. They are also offered a carbohydrate element such as bread and cakes they may have made themselves or toast, breadsticks, muffins etc. The children also help to prepare the snack and are offered a choice of milk, water.

Now it's our turn to join in the fun...

Cooking is a wonderful learning opportunity:

What are ingredients and how do they combine to make meals and snacks?
How do we weigh and measure?
What utensils are needed for mixing, pouring and rolling?

The children also have the chance to taste new foods and those associated with different cultures and celebrations as they increase their knowledge and undertstanding of the world.
