Food for thought
Rothersthorpe Day Nursery regards snack and meal times as an important part of the children's sessions/day. We provide freshly prepared nutritious food at all meals and snacks, avoiding large quantities of saturated fat, sugar and salt and artificial additives, preservatives and colourings, meeting full requirements of the EYFS for safeguarding and promoting children welfare.
Children are encouraged to have healthy diet. High priority is given to meet individual's dietary needs and we include foods from the diet of each of the children's cultural backgrounds, providing children with familiar foods and introducing them to new ones. We encourage children to serve themselves at snack time and tea time, to develop their communication and social skills.
Our menus are designed for easy adaptations to cater for all dietary requirements including allergies, vegetarian options, and parental preferences.
Throughout the day and at mealtimes we encourage the children to drink fresh water. Milk is provided at snack time and teatime. If your child’s regularly drinking milk this will be provided at snack times or at the times you have requested to us.
We are annually inspected by the Environmental Health Department to ensure we are meeting standards and adhering to procedures given. We received a 5 rating on our food hygiene inspection.
We offer different menus for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Each menu is further divided into 4 week menu to provide children with variety of food.
