At ILM 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 which meet individual needs and requirements. We work in line with government guidance, the Eatwell guide and Startwell.
We provide a balanced and healthy breakfast, midday meal, tea and two daily snacks. Our menus are planned in advance, rotated regularly and reflect cultural diversity and variation. These are displayed for children and parents to view, please press the Eatwell guide to access the nursery menu.
Fresh drinking water is always available and accessible. It is frequently offered to children and babies and intake is monitored. In hot weather staff will encourage children to drink more water to keep them hydrated.
