Food at Puddleducks Nursery
Our 3 weekly menus are planned and designed to offer a varied, nutritious and well balanced diet, with food freshly prepared daily on site. We aim to introduce the children to different tastes and textures whist encouraging good manners and a happy atmosphere when we sit down for meal times.

All food and drink is included in the nursery fees and we offer the following (depending on the sessions your child attends):

Delicious Meals
Mid Morning Snack
This is served at 9.30am and is a snack to keep the children going until Lunchtime. Snack includes a drink of water or milk and a choice of either toast, cereal or piece of fruit.

 

Lunch
Lunch at Puddleducks is a full home cooked meal including pudding. All lunchtime food is freshly prepared in the morning ready to be served by midday. Quiches, pizzas, curries, chilli etc are all home made and like all the other meals on offer use fresh ingredients as far as possible.
All puddings are also freshly prepared, so cakes, custard, fruit puddings etc are also made in the morning. Water is always offered to drink at lunchtime.

 

AFternoon Snack
This is offered at 2.30pm and is a snack of either a biscuit, fresh fruit or something the children have made them selves. Snack includes a drink of water or milk.

 

Tea
We offer a light tea at 4.00pm. Teatime is a very enjoyable time at nursery and it enables the children to rest and refuel for the last part of the day. Tea is predominantly finger food offering a selection of savoury foods, sandwiches as well as hot teas such as beans on toast, home made pizzas and cheese puffs. Tea is always served with fresh fruit and a drink of either water or milk. Again the food is freshly prepared and cooked on site..

 

Drinks
All children are offered water throughout the day; this is cool boiled water for children under 12 months. Cows milk is also available.

 

Special Dietary Requirements
We cater for special dietary requirements, by prior arrangement. This is possible because we prepare food on site and we are in control of the ingredients purchased and the set up of the cooking area.

 

Babies Meal Times
Eating and drinking are very important developmentally for babies and young children. At Puddleducks we work closely with the parents of the babies, especially at weaning stage. We work alongside parents/carers and ask you to provide your babies food until you and us are confident that your child is ready to be introduced to the full menu (all be it pureed to start with). Snack and tea times offer excellent opportunities for the younger children to experience finger foods and mastering drinking from free flow cups.
