Welcome to Ambourne House Day Nursery

main Healthy Eating/Mealtimes

We value diversity of cultural and religious views towards food and are sympathetic to all medical needs. We are therefore happy to cater for individual dietary requirements. We have gained a ‘Healthy Pre-school Award’, which highlights our commitment to a healthy eating philosophy.

We offer a mid-morning and a mid-afternoon break, which comprises of fresh fruit and milk/water. Lunch and tea are provided daily by a specialist company called ‘Early Years Catering’, who have recently obtained a nationally recognized ‘Soil Association Award’. Their nutritious meals are prepared daily by qualified chefs, who use all fresh ingredients, most of which are locally sourced and organic. No artificial additives or salt are used and their menus offer a healthy and balanced diet suitable for young children, which exceed government standards.

Menus are designed on a 4 weekly cycle and are displayed on the front door. Mealtimes are sociable occasions, good table manners are expected and are the ‘norm’ at Ambourne House.
