All meals are freshly prepared and cooked on site by qualified cooks. There is a wide range of healthy meals and snacks provided daily and special dietary needs are catered for. We offer breakfast, a two course hot lunch and a snack tea; with a choice of milk or water to drink. Babies are provided with a weaning menu which is discussed with parents.
The mealtimes-menus are on a four weekly rotation and are changed seasonally. During mealtimes independence is promoted age appropriately. Children eat meals in key worker groups making it a great time for social interaction.
All staff supporting children at mealtimes have a food safety/hygiene qualification. We highly value our Smile for Life accreditation, awarded by Lancashire County Council. This involved helping children learn about making healthy choices, preventing tooth decay and obesity.
A healthy eating policy is in place which ensures fresh drinking water is available at all times.
