Our nursery cook Janice cooks freshly prepared meals daily in the fully equipped kitchen on site. We have fresh vegetables and meat delivered when we need them. We use quality, recognised local food suppliers. Jennings of Caversham supply our meat and can trace all their produce to source. We use Tesco to deliver the vegetables and groceries to our door.
The nursery has, for the last 3 years, been awarded a food hygiene rating of 5 stars which is recognised as excellent.

Nutritious and well balanced meals are provided throughout the day. The nursery follows a 4 week menu rota; it’s been designed to meet all the dietary requirements, we also have a vegetarian option.
Children are encouraged to enjoy meal times as social occasions, using good table manners and sensible behaviour.
