Healthy Eating

We feel home-cooked, healthy, nutritious meals are important in ensuring children are ready for the day ahead, alongside promoting active learning and development.

At Woodend we offer a large variety of healthy eating options ensuring there is something to suit all children’s tastes and requirements.  Our team of nursery assistants all have had food hygiene training and prepare and provide a daily variety of healthy breakfast and snacks.

We do all the home cooking within nursery. We have three lunch  menus on weekly rotation. All meals are freshly cooked with focus on healthy and nutritional ingredients, and also ensures any food intolerances or allergies are catered for. 

Our children are encouraged to grow in our vegetable pod, which is producing some wonderful crops which we use in our snacks. The children love to offer their parents their home grown produce at the door  lettuces and beetroot.

Fresh water is available through out the day for all children.

Breakfast is offered between 7:30 and 8.30am and we provide a large variety of healthy cereals, fruit and wholemeal toast, poached eggs alongside milk or water.

Morning Snack is served from 9:45am and includes an array of healthy options and including a range of fresh fruit or vegetables ensuring children make healthy choices.

Babies and younger toddlers are closely supported by key workers and encouraged to try and self feed when ready. Older toddlers and our Pre-schoolers enjoy pouring their own drinks sharing and joining in with key workers chatting and learning about the healthy snack choices available and learning to use table manners.

Our Chef's Lunches are served between 11:45am and 1pm depending on age groups. a healthy lunch and pudding with a choice of fruit and water through out. 

The children are given a warm well-balanced meal and a healthy dessert/cake. 

The firm favourites are: Lamb Tattie Pot, Spaghetti Bolognese and garlic bread  and Chicken dinner! 

Examples of the weekly menus are shown below.

Afternoon Snack is provided around 2:45pm, comprising a healthy snack with different choices of fruit or vegetables to accompany the snack.

Also we offer a late tea for children who require it.
