Snacks, meals and drinks
I am happy to discuss my menus with parents/carers. I cater for a variety of cultural/religious dietary needs and use organic/Fairtrade produce whenever possible and all meat used in my setting is Halal. I cater for children with a wide range of food allergies and intolerances. If your child has any particular dislikes or favourite dishes please let me know.
Babies: I do not provide infant formula or jars of baby food within my fees. I am happy to mash food which I am preparing for other children and lightly alter meals to suit small babies as required.
If your baby is using formula milk during the day please send along adequate formula along with sterilised bottles in your child's bag. I support parents in their chosen weaning methods whether its baby led weaning or puree. Until your baby is able to eat items on my menus I would ask that you provide me with your own purred meals or jars.
Sweets and cakes: I do not encourage children to eat sweets on a regular basis, however I do sometimes offer cakes and biscuits etc for special occasions or if we have made something ourselves.
