Meals and Menus
All meals and snacks are planned and prepared by our fully qualified cook. Careful consideration is given to dietary requirements and through thoughtful planning the meals are well balanced and nutritional. Many of our cakes, pies, crumbles and pastries are home-made and, where possible, fresh produce is used daily.
Mealtimes at Giggles & Wiggles are taken in small groups re-creating, as near as possible, a homely atmosphere as well as providing great opportunities for children to explore new tastes and textures and learn important social skills preparing them for the years ahead. Children are encouraged to develop good table manners and learn how to use utensils.
Meals and snacks included in a typical nursery day are as follows: Breakfast, served between 7.30 and 9; Lunch, served at 11:30; and tea served at 15:30; with snacks provided mid-morning and mid-afternoon. Menus are displayed daily, and special dietary requirements can be catered for upon request.
We have full time cooks who prepare all the meals using fresh ingredients which the children really enjoy! We have recently achieved ‘Nurturing Health’ Awards at both setting in recognition of the healthy menus. The menus are displayed on the parent’s notice board within each setting. Special dietary requirements are also catered for.
