The children in our care are provided with a healthy, well-balanced diet of varied and nutritious meals. The daily diet is chosen to accommodate the cultural, medical, or religious needs of the children attending.
We make sure that the meals are suitable for children and toddlers alike and that special dietary needs (e.g. for allergies, for vegetarians, for vegans, or for religious reasons, etc.) are catered for as far as possible. All members of staff are vigilant about ensuring that children follow their diets.

Lunch is supplied by the University catering service based at Hawthornes and is delivered in insulated boxes to the nursery. The menu is produced in consultation with nursery staff. This facilitates prompt feedback and greater flexibility.
Meals are recorded daily in the menu book and a daily menu is displayed on the notice board for the parents to see.
