Food and Nutrition

At Hucknall Day Nursery we believe that mealtimes should be happy, social occasions for children and staff alike. We promote shared, enjoyable positive interactions at these times. We are committed to offering children healthy, nutritious and balanced meals and snacks. We respect and cater for individual dietary requirements and will work with parents to ensure we child’s nutritional needs are met. Our daily menus, prepared by our dedicated cook Sam, include a minimum of 5 serving of fruit and vegetables per day.

We encourage children to try new foods and develop their social skills in a communal environment.  As children progress through the nursery, independence is encouraged through self-selection and self-serving and clearing. Our menus run on a 28-day rotation and are displayed throughout the nursery and can be found on the ‘Info’ section of our website.
