Alongside outdoor play, food is one of the things that really makes Farm Friends Day Nursery stand out from the crowd.
We are proud to have won a Platinum Healthy Eating Award and we strive to provide a healthy and varied diet for all the children attending our nursery. Our recent Ofsted inspection reported ‘a particular strength is the attention given to healthy eating’.
All of the food is freshly prepared daily and, where possible, sourced locally - the potatoes and turkey are from the farm itself! We use recipes the ’Essential Early Years Cookbook’, which ensures all the meals we provide are nutritionally balanced to suit growing children and menus are planned carefully to achieve a well-balanced and healthy diet.
All staff involved in food preparation have Food Hygiene qualifications and the snacks we provide are healthy and of a high nutritional value.
We also cater for special dietary requirements such as food intolerances and vegetarians.
