Eating together is a celebration everyday.

 Karen, Nursery Cook

The Nursery will provide all meals which are freshly prepared on the premises using local produce. Great care will be taken to always provide nutritious, well-balanced meals. There will be a strong focus on developing good table manners with all the children. Snacks and drinks are provided throughout the day. 

We have two cooks who work together to deliver a varied and nutritious menu from our own kitchen. We have a rolling menu that changes with the seasons and with the availability of fresh produce.

Karen and Sandy use a diverse choice of raw ingredients to cook and prepare snacks and meals that help children to learn about taste, smells and textures of different foods. Children are introduced to a mix of strong and subtle flavours which encourages confidence in adventurous food choices as they grow.

Morning snack time can consist of fresh raw vegetables or fruit. Bananas are a firm favourite, full vitamins C and D, known to boost serotonin levels while providing a healthier alternative to sugary biscuits and snacks that can suppress a good lunchtime appetite.

All our produce is sourced locally, from local suppliers. Our meat comes from award-winning Stamford butchers Nelson's (famous recently for impressing Prince Charles with their pork pies!), our fruit and vegetables from Adams Apple in Northamptonshire and our bread from Stamford bakers Askers.
