Food and Nutrition at Angmering Day Nursery

At the Angmering Day Nursery, we thoroughly believe that establishing healthy eating routines in the Early Years establishes good foundations for future health and well being.

Our home-made meals are all cooked from scratch each day, in our own nursery kitchen, ready for our children to enjoy. We operate a 3-week rotating menu for Winter and Summer which is based on guidelines from the Children’s Food Trust

Each of our recipes has been carefully considered for the age of children we cater for in terms of both nutrition and portion size, ensuring that our menus are well balanced for growing bodies.

We do not add any salt or sugar to any of our food and source as many organic ingredients as we can in order to promote healthy eating and to reduce the number of chemical additives digested. Our menus are varied, and we try to introduce the children to new tastes and textures as often as possible.

We encourage the children to get involved in some of the preparation for some of our snacks and simple meals. We grow a great deal of fruit and vegetables in our farm allotment and these are harvested by the children each season and used within our recipes. Cooking and baking are daily activities for groups of children. They begin to learn all about where our food comes from, how to measure and weigh and how ingredients are brought together to make delicious meals for us all to enjoy.

Mealtimes at the nursery are a social occasion. Children sit together to eat at the tables alongside the adults who care for them and we all eat together. Children are supported with serving out the food and pouring drinks of water or milk and are supported to use lovely table manners. Over mealtimes, the children chat happily to each other about their food and the activities they have been doing during that session, with the adults supporting them where needed.
