Rainbow Tots Nursery Meals and Snacks

Approach

At Rainbow Tots Nurseries we offer our children a well balanced, nutritional set of meals and snacks that are cooked by our dedicated cook on site, we do not used processed foods or offer chips, burgers, sausages in our meals.  Because we prepare most of our food from scratch we can ensure that our food contains the minimum amount of salt and sugar and we have a 5 week rotation on menu's.

Allergies and Dietary requirements

We are used to dealing with children's food allergies and all kinds of dietary requirements.  Just let us know and we'll make sure your child’s specific requirements are catered for.

We always offer a choice of sweet pudding or fresh fruit with our Lunch and Tea and children's snack's are always  different fruits in the afternoon and in the morning children are offered a more substantial snack such as toast with different toppings, cheese and crackers, apple and cheese, toasted teacake or croissant to mention a few. 

Our meal and snack times are :
Morning snack 9am to 9.30am
Lunch 12:00noon
Afternoon snack 2:30pm to 3:00pm
Tea 4:00pmEncouraging children to eat

Not all children eat well and we know this can be a headache and a worry for many parents.  At Rainbow Tots Nursery we make meal times fun and a social affair.  We all eat at the same time (staff and children) and we help and encourage all the children to try different foods.Menu

We will produce a weekly menu on a 5 weekly rota so you can see what your child will eat before-hand.  We will always make a note on their daily diary sheet about what they liked and how much or little they ate.Drinks

For Elves(2-3yrs) and Pixies(3-5yr )children are asked to bring in their own water bottles where they  learn to help themselves. Children bringing in a new or their favourite bottle/cup can often result in them drinking a little better.
Whilst in our Imps(under's 2yrs) we ensure that children are offered and given water on a regular basis especially during the hotter months.
