Healthy eating & meal times

Healthy Eating
At Best childcare Forest school Nursery we are passionate about healthy eating and good nutrition for children’s growing minds and bodies.

We provide a non-meat diet which includes fish, eggs, pulses, whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables, and our nursery benefits from

  • Locally sources ingredients
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Herbs and spices from our own edible herb garden
  • Freshly prepared meals and snacks from our own talented chef.

Meal times are a social family occasion with practitioners eating with children and sharing events of the day. 

All children have their own drinking bottle which is accessible at all times. Children are encouraged to drink fresh water at regular intervals during the day. 

Any specific dietary requirements can also be catered for and cultural and religious needs taken into account from your child’s individual care plan. 

Formula milk is not provided. However, we have facilities for the storage of breast and formula milk and actively encourage parents to continue breast feeding whilst their baby is in our care. Babies will be weaned in accordance with parents’ own wishes and we supply blended food for babies from our menu.
