We encourage a love of food with our children through games and activities as well as during meal times. They have fun making their own dishes together, enjoying tasting sessions, flavours and textures. We encourage children to learn about nutrition and tell us about their favourite meals in topics and group discussions.

Food at the Ladybird Nursery

We strive to ensure every meal contains the right nutritional balance of fat, protein, complex carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.

We treat our mealtimes as a special occasion everyday. We provide children with the chance to interact with others and explore and develop a love of good food in a relaxed and welcoming environment. We combine textures, colours and tastes to make each meal a pleasure. Seasonable vegetables are always used when possible.

The children have a vegetable patch where they grow, harvest, cook and eat the fruits of their own efforts.
