Diet & Nutrition – Rocking Horse Nursery
Meal times at the Rocking Horse Nursery are a time for learning to socialise and encouraging good table manners and healthy eating.
All our nutritionally balanced meals are cooked on the premises fresh every day by the talented team of chefs based in the Racecourse kitchens, we use mealtimes as opportunities to talk about healthy eating. Where possible we source our produce locally. All special dietary requirements are accommodated.
We supply all the formula feeds up to when the child is a year old and then work with the parent when they start being weaned catering to special diets.
We offer the children (depending on their attendance) the following meals:
Breakfast – choice of cereals
Morning snack – breadsticks, fruit raw vegetables etc
Lunch – two course meal with hot main on a four week rotation. Meals such as risotto, spaghetti bolognaise, roast dinner and puddings include jelly, fruit salad and fruit pies. Vegetarian options are always available.
Afternoon tea – babies are offered a second hot meal, the remaining children enjoy an afternoon tea which can include sandwiches, toast, crudities followed by fruit and cakes.
Drinks – Water is available throughout the day and milk is offered at snack times.
