Mealtimes at Munchkins

 

We believe a good diet is essential for happy, well developed, healthy children therefore we offer well planned meals that are cooked with dedication & love & use fresh fruit, vegetables and meat. Our menus are varied and all the food is freshly prepared daily in our kitchen which holds a 5 star food hygiene rating.

Mealtimes are important in the nursery; children have the same food (unless alternatives are required due to allergies or religious beliefs) and eat together at the tables, this provides a great opportunity in encouraging the tasting of new flavours and enjoying the social side of mealtimes.

On certain days children can actively take part in cooking some of the food prepared (e.g. Pizza making) in order to stimulate their interest in food & encourage new experiences.

 Below are a few examples of some of the weekly menus we provide, to give you an idea as to what our children will be enjoying.
