Healthy Eating    

At Ladybirds, we believe that meal times should be social, happy times where eating skills can be developed and wholesome food enjoyed!

We have a fully trained Chef in our nursery, who freshly prepares and cooks every meal on site on a daily basis, and where we can, use locally sourced suppliers! 

Our nurseries are regularly inspected by the local authorities to ensure we are meeting standards and adhering to the procedures given. We have 5 stars with Scores On The Doors.

All of our meals are carefully planned to meet the needs and requirements of a developing child. Vegetarian options are available daily and fresh fruit is always offered as an alternative pudding / dessert. If you have any more specific or special dietary requirements for your child then these are dealt with at your child's enrollment and we aim to cater for most variations in diet. 

Snacks are provided, free of charge, every day!

Breakfast (8-9am)- Toast is provided with a wide choice of spreads including Butter, Marmite, Jam, Honey

Mid-morning snack (9.30-10.30am)- Selection of fruit (banana, apple, grapes, pear, raisins, orange etc.)

Mid afternoon snack (3-4pm)- A choice of either sandwiches, crackers, bread sticks, fruit etc.

Drinks: milk and water are available throughout the day.
