Food and drink

As part of promoting healthy lifestyles, at the Rocking Horse Day Nursery we ensure all food is healthy and nutritious.

Generally, the children have good appetites and are able to identify healthy foods. Parents and carers are given feedback as to what their child has eaten that day.

Food is prepared on site by Mini Meals with 5 star food hygiene rating from the Food Standard Agency.

We see snack and meal times as enjoyable social occasions.

Children and staff sit at small tables together where the children are encouraged to use cutlery and develop the necessary skills of pouring their own drinks, helping staff to lay the table and help serve meals to other children, thus developing independence and knowledge.
