Food and Nutrition

We strongly believe that a well-balanced and nutritious diet is an essential part of a child’s development and well-being. Meal and snack times are happy, social times, where skills can be developed and food enjoyed.

Our spotlessly clean kitchen and food storage areas always receive positive feedback from routine inspections by Environmental Health. What’s more, we achieved our Healthy Tots Status in 2011 and have been reaccredited in 2015.

At The Lighthouse Day Nursery & Pre-School we will:

  • Always have a dedicated, qualified Catering Manager who is committed to providing healthy homemade meals and snacks of the highest standards made from directly delivered fresh produce.
  • Ensure that all eating habits and dietary requirements are catered for, encouraging children to serve themselves with fresh salad, fruit, vegetables, milk and water, and we also ensure that staff share meal times with your child.
  • Review our menus on a regular basis, always providing a varied diet with new ingredients.

To see the food, menus and ingredients which are being provided each day for your child, please log-in to our password protected ‘Parent Zone’.
