Encouraging healthy behaviours for life

Recognising that dietary preferences and eating habits are influenced largely by habits formed in early life we ensure that every child at Leapfrog Neighbourhood Nursery enjoys healthy, nutritious food all day long.

Alongside tasty breakfasts and twice daily snacks, your children benefit from well balanced and varied home style meals provided by our specialist nursery catering supplier. Based on recommendations from the Carolyn Walker Trust and Children’s Food Trust our carefully co-ordinated menus provide the appropriate nutritional value for growing children as well as offering a broad palette of flavours to stimulate their growing tastes.

Meals are an important, fun and social part of our routine. Children sit together and are encouraged to try new foods and eat the meals provided as they watch their peers doing the same. Older children use cutlery, serve themselves from serving dishes and scrape their own plates clean when they have finished.

We are excited to be able to provide the fantastic opportunity for children to learn first hand about where their food comes from as they plant, grow, harvest, prepare and devour fresh produce from our nursery allotments. Food doesn’t get much more local than that!

Safety always comes first with little ones and that applies to food as much as anything else. That’s why we have chosen a supplier with the highest food rating of 5 and all our
in-house catering staff have an up to date food handling certification. We also cater for children’s specific dietary needs including allergies or food intolerances ensuring all children leave the table full and nourished ready to actively enjoy the rest of their day.
