DIET & NUTRITION

Healthy Eating

We provide an exceedingly high standard of healthy meals using the highest quality ingredients. Your child will receive a hot two-course lunch and tea along with breakfast and snacks. We do not charge for meals and they are included in the price for the day.

During the day children will receive snacks consisting of fruit and vegetables accompanied with milk or water. Fresh clean water is available to children through the day.

“Children learn the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables. Children develop excellent self-care skills as they serve their own meals and learn good portion control.” OFSTED 2019

Dining Room

At Melbourne day nursery we have a dining room and encourage children to sit with their peers and have their lunch. Staff accompany children at lunch time and tea to model good behaviour. Children learn to self – serve and learn about portion control. We plan activities around healthy eating and help children make healthier choices.

Once children have finished their meal, they help their key person to tidy away. This helps children understand routine and take on responsibility.
