We aim to help each child develop healthy eating habits by providing delicious fresh meals and snacks.
Having our own cook onsite means we can cater for all individual requirements, allergies, likes and dislikes. While we encourage the children to try different foods, parents (or children) can always opt for an alternative.
We have been awarded a Food Hygiene Rating of 5 – the highest rating available. We have also participated in Newtownabbey Borough Council’s programme for ‘Nutritious Nursery Nosh’ which monitors the food we serve and ensures we meet the highest standards of nutrition.
Breakfast is served up until 9am every morning. We have a variety of breakfast cereals including Organix Porridge, Redybrek, Weetabix, Rice Krispies and Cornflakes.
Morning snack consists of wholemeal toast, a variety of fruit, cheese and milk or water to drink.
Our lunch menu varies each week and is displayed in the hallways but it will typically include a different meat each day served with either potato, rice or pasta. Examples include :
Fish and Broccoli in Cheese Sauce with Potatoes
Chicken Curry with Rice
Tomato, Bacon and Lentil Soup
Pork Casserole with Potatoes
Chicken a la King with Rice
Each meal is packed full of vegetables and does not include any added salt. We also have a Vegetarian/ Vegan Menu if required.
