All meals and snacks are freshly prepared on the premises each day. Our seasonal menu has recently been redesigned with ourselves and the help of Nicholas Munting MBE, to ensure children receive a nutritionally balanced, diverse range of meals.
Cultural flavours & dishes have been incorporated into our menu for children to experience many tastes of the world. Meals are adapted to meet individual dietary and allergy requirements.
All Little Cherubs staff have participated in HENRY (Health, Exercise & Nutrition for the Really Young) training on a guidance, knowledge & confidence in providing support for families on healthy eating and portion control.
We provide breakfast, lunch and tea for our children daily. Healthy mid-morning and afternoon snacks are offered to all children, along with a drink of milk or water.
Whilst we focus on healthy eating, we do not discourage parents from bringing in celebration cakes, as recognising and celebrating a child’s birthday builds self-esteem and uconfidence.
We aim to promote positive attitudes towards healthy eating through play opportunities, planned activities and games.
As a full day nursery we are able to offer children less than 5 years of age, 189 ml (1/3 pint) of milk for each day they attend for 2 hours or more free of charge.
Whilst we encourage a practice focusing on Healthy Eating, we do not discourage parents from bringing in celebration cakes, as we believe that recognising and celebrating a child’s birthday builds both good self esteem and confidence providing it does not contain any traces of nuts. If the cake may contain nuts we will have a celebration and cut the cake to be taken home' after it says celebration cakes.
