Sample Menu

At ABC Nursery and Pre-school, we believe that mealtimes should be social, happy times where skills can be developed and foods tasted.

Our cook is fully trained and prepares the food on site everyday using the freshest ingredients, including fresh fruit and vegetables. All our meals are carefully planned to meet the individual needs and requirements of each child.

Our nursery is regularly inspected by the local authority, to ensure we are meeting standards and adhering to the procedures given.

Our menu’s are displayed in the nursery daily for parents to read, an example is below…….

Guidance to parents on ‘Packed Lunches’

We aim to ensure all aspects of food and nutrition at  ABC Nursery and Preschool.We promote the health and wellbeing of the children. Children are not allowed to swap or share their food from lunch boxes.
In addition, the preschool requests parents not include the following:

  • Sweets
  • Food containing nuts (some children in the have an allergy reaction to any contact with nuts.)•
  • Fizzy/sugary drinks

Packed Lunches
We would like lunch boxes to reflect a healthy balanced meal. There are currently no government regulations regarding the contents of children’s packed lunches. However the British Nutrition
Foundation produced a set of guidelines recommending what should be included in lunch boxes to provide them with a healthy meal. We are asked by OFSTED to provide parents with appropriate food content for lunch boxes.
The recommended contents of a healthy lunch box are:

  • A good portion of starchy food e.g. wholegrain roll, thick slice of wholemeal bread, pita pocket, plain cracker, pasta or rice salad.

 

  • Plenty of fruit and vegetables e.g. an apple, satsuma, handful of cherry tomatoes or carrot sticks, mini can of fruit chunks(decanted into a plastic container), small box of raisins
  • A portion of milk or dairy food e.g. individual cheese portion, pot of yogurt.

 

  • A small portion of lean meat, fish or alternative eg slices of ham, quorn, cheese, tuna, egg or hummus.
  • A drink e.g. small carton of fruit juice, no added sugar fruit squash. Water is provided.

 

  • One small packet of crisps, a fruit scone or portion of malt loaf,a small cake or biscuit may also be included (please avoid chocolate as much as possible.
