At Mulberry Corner we have a healthy eating policy. Staff are encouraged to eat their lunch with the children and to promote our healthy eating policy in their own lunch choices. All meal times at nursery are a social event. Groups are kept small to enable the staff to interact with the children and to encourage good manners at the table.
Our nursery lunches are provided by a specialist catering company called Hungry Monsters and have proven to be a real hit with the children and parents alike. Hungry Monsters prepare freshly made, nutritionally balanced meals on a daily basis. Menus are available at the nursery for parents to view at the start of each week. Hungry Monsters is able to cater for all medical, religious and cultural dietary requirements.
We also use Hungry Monsters for our tea at 4pm every day. This usually consists of either pizza, sandwhiches or pasta and then veg sticks, fruit and yoghurts.
For children’s snack time, a selection of fruit is always on offer together with other healthy options such as crackers, differents breads, cheese and cereal bars. There is also a choice of milk or water to drink. Our snack bars are open throughout the morning and afternoon and the children are able to come to the snack bar when they wish. We monitor the snack bar to ensure that every child has a drink and something to eat during their session.
