We all know that mealtimes with little ones can be a challenge.  Here at Barncliffe Day Nursery we offer fresh, high quality, nutritionally balanced meals and snacks which are prepared and cooked onsite each day in our nursery kitchen by our trained nursery cook.  We like to offer the children a variety of different meals including some of their favourites in a bid to tempt even the fussiest of little eaters.

The menus are rotated on a four weekly basis and changed both in summer and winter seasons.  The children are encouraged to make their own choices at snack times, and get involved with baking and cooking activities.

Drinking water is provided at each mealtime and throughout the day, each child is provided with a clean water bottle with their own personal name and picture tag attached.
