Healthy Eating

Good Nourishment and Healthy Eating are Particularly Important in the Early Years

Good nourishment and healthy eating are particularly important in the early years of our children’s

growth and development.

The nursery will provide breakfast, lunch, tea, morning and afternoon snacks for your child
depending on their attendance.


Pre-School children are developing faster than at any other time in their lives, therefore their diets
require the right kind of tasty nutritious foods to encourage healthy growth. This means they
need good carbohydrates to give them energy, protein to build their bodies and essential
vitamins and minerals for healthy bones and teeth.


So to embrace all these needs Rectory Nursery School will provide healthy, well balanced,
nutritious meals that meet the specific dietary requirements of all children. We have a healthy mix of vegetarian
and meat dishes so that the children are generally more nutritionally aware than others, most of our eating habits are learned in childhood, so the healthy lifestyle they are exposed to as kids should stand them in good stead
for the rest of their lives.


Menus are displayed on our notice boards. These fully nutritional meals are prepared by catering staff who hold the relevant food Hygiene certificates.


At meal times staff sit with the children to encourage quiet conversation which makes them a
social and happy time and helps promote good eating habits.


Special diets can be catered for on request.


After lunch the children have a quiet time and those who wish have the opportunity to sleep.
A ‘snack table’ is available throughout the morning and afternoon to give children the opportunity
to choose from a selection of fresh fruit or vegetables and drinks of milk or water.
