Food, Glorious Food!

The full-time children who attend Starshine Nursery are offered 3 delicious meals each day – breakfast, lunch, tea and two snacks. Breakfast, lunch and one snack are provided for the children who attend in the morning, and one snack and tea for the children who attend in the afternoon. We also offer the children water and milk to drink throughout the day.

We have a three-week menu on display on the Parent’s Notice Board, which is healthy and nutritious, and changes to reflect the seasons. All of our food is cooked on site, from scratch, so it can be adapted for individual dietary requirements. We cook with no added salt or preservatives, and we only use small amounts of sugar in our puddings.

We love to celebrate the children’s special occasions at the nursery. Parent’s are welcome to bring in cakes and treats for the children to enjoy.

The children are also involved with the menu. Once a week they decide what they would like for pudding and tea and make it themselves (with the help of the adults, of course). We hope that by engaging the children in cooking activities they can learn more about where their food comes from, and will be more motivated to eat what they have made.
