At Monkey Puzzle day nursery we strongly believe that a healthy, balanced diet is essential for growth and development in under 5’s. Our menus are formulated by a paediatric nutritionist to help give your child the best start in life.
At Monkey Puzzle we always provide fresh, balanced meals and snacks, ensuring that we offer our children 100% of their recommended daily intake of fresh fruit and vegetables over the course of the day. We have our own amazing cook who is passionate about making sure our children have full tummies ready for a day of play and learning. Our cook follows recipes recommended by Early Years nutritionists. All specific dietary requirements, food allergies and intolerances are catered for.
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, to get our children off to flying start, we offer a variety of non-sugared cereals, fresh fruit and wholemeal toast. At Lunch and Teatime, We serve a hot lunch and a light tea. Both of these meals are well-balanced and are freshly prepared by our cook.
Copies of our menus and recipes are available at the nursery. Please ask our Nursery Manager for a copy.
We encourage the children to drink fresh water throughout the day and at all meal times – we do not offer squash. Fresh drinking water is always available for our children. At snack times the children are also offered fresh whole milk.
