"The Nursery really encourages my child to try new foods"

"I eat all my lunch, it's delicious!"

Isla

At The Blue Door Nursery we serve home cooked food using high quality ingredients. We serve nutritious food that we know our children will eat. Our early children (before 8.30am) have breakfast, we sit together for our midmorning snack and then we have a proper cooked lunch. We have our afternoon snack together, then our tea at 4.15pm, and then everyone who is going home late (after 5.00pm) has another snack. We encourage all the children to try a little taste of everything - even if they are not sure and a reward system is in place to reward the adventurous! We cater for all special diets and food preferences and our cook makes individual portions of food for babies at varying consistencies, according to stages of development. We have drinking water available to the children at all times. We use meal times to discuss healthy eating and healthy lifestyle choices, we demonstrate polite manners and conversation at mealtimes and we can brush our teeth after lunch if we have brought our toothbrush!
