Menus

We encourage healthy eating here at Little Engineers Nursery. 

Mealtimes should be a happy and social occasion for both the children and staff. Our menus are usually rotated on a 3-week basis. Snack and Tea are prepared by the staff at the Nursery and the delicious lunches are catered by an external company. 

At Little Engineers Nursery we:

  • Provide a balanced lunch, tea and daily snacks which include a platter of fruit. The children are given the choice of having milk or water to drink.
  • Follow the children’s dietary needs. These are recorded and put up in the room so they are visible for the staff to see.
  • Ensure all children wash their hands before meals and snacks
  • Staff prompt children in exhibiting good manners at the table, encouraging them to say “please” and “thank you”.
  • Encourage the children to make their own choices by serving up their own lunch, feeding themselves and pouring their own drinks.
  • Encourage children to be social with their friends at the table.
  • Encourage children who refuse to eat their meals.
  • Give more time for children who are slow eaters to eat their meals – they will not be rushed.
  • Take portion sizes into account regarding each individual child’s needs.
  • Provide access to fresh drinking water for all of the children throughout the course of the day.

 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have had to adjust to the changing times. Lunch is currently being prepared by our neighbour, The Weybridge Cafe. Please see below the current menu.
