Food

Our menus are planned and designed to offer a varied, nutritious and well balanced diet, with food freshly prepared daily on site. We aim to introduce the children to different tastes and textures whilst encouraging good manners and a happy atmosphere when we sit down for meal times. Copies of the weekly menu are available from the reception area but you can find some sample menu’s here.

Menu

Food-Hygiene-RatingAll food and drink is included in the nursery fees and we offer the following (depending on the sessions your child attends):

Breakfast: Served between 9-9:30 and normally includes cereal or porridge

Mid Morning Snack: This is served at 10.30am and is a snack to keep the children going until Lunchtime. Snack includes a drink of water or milk and a biscuit, cracker, toast or piece of fruit.

Lunch: Lunch at Treetops is a full cooked meal including pudding. All lunchtime food is freshly prepared in the morning ready to be served by midday. Quiches, pizzas, curries, chilli etc are all home made and like all the other meals on offer use fresh ingredients as far as possible. Our meat is delivered daily from a local butcher and our groceries are delivered every Monday. All puddings are also freshly prepared, so cakes, custard, fruit puddings etc are also made in the morning. Water is always offered to drink at lunchtime.

Tea: Tea at Treetops is served around 3.30pm. It is a “High Tea” and as such is not intended to be the last meal of the day. Teatime is a very enjoyable time at nursery and it enables the children to rest and refuel for the last part of the day. Tea is predominantly finger food e.g. sandwiches, crumpets and always with fresh fruit and a drink of either water or milk. Again the food is freshly prepared and cooked on site and all cakes and biscuits are home made.

Special Dietary Requirements

We cater for special dietary requirements, by prior arrangement. This is possible because we prepare food on site and we are in control of the ingredients purchased and the set up of the cooking area. It also means that the children who are affected by the requirements are offered a similar alternative e.g. vegetarian chilli, egg and dairy free cake, custard made with Soya milk etc, and they are not singled out because of their dietary needs.
