We believe that meal times are an integral part of the day at Nursery.
At The Old Railway House, we have two lovely cooks who prepare the children's food on-site every day. We do not allow food to be brought in from home, but rather all of our children enjoy a hot dinner with us, which is included in the session price*. Where possible we use fresh ingredients and there is no added salt in our recipes.
We have a four week rotating meal menu, packed with balanced, nutritional and tasty food. We review our menus on a regular basis and incorporate seasonal favourites along the way. Our menus include food from around the world, from sweet and sour chicken, to curry, to traditionally British cottage pie and vegetables.
We cater for individual dietary requirements (for example dairy free, gluten free, vegetarian etc.) and display allergen information for all of our food. We also cater for parental and religious preferences.
Refreshments (milk, water, squash) are available throughout the day and we offer a variety of snack options twice a day (morning and afternoon).
