At Monkey Puzzle Orpington we strongly believe that healthy, balanced nursery meals are essential for growth and development in under 5’s. This prompted us to consult with a paediatric nutritionist to formulate a menu that will help give your child the best start in life.
At Monkey Puzzle Orpington we strongly believe that a healthy, balanced diet is essential to your child’s growth and development. Every day is an opportunity for us to satisfy your child’s appetite with delicious and nutritious meals and snacks, designed with their needs in mind, with a menu planned to broaden their food experiences.
Our talented, experienced and dedicated catering team have created a menu with your child at the centre and will help give your child the best start in life. In consultation with children, parents and our wonderful team the menu provides a wide range of foods to spark children’s curiosity and meet their nutritional requirements.
We love to see children’s excitement when presented with a selection of colour, shape, texture, and taste for their mealtimes. It is a privilege to support you in developing their palate.
Our staff will support your child to keep healthy and hydrated enabling them to have their drink at hand for when they need one, and working regular drinks breaks into our daily routine too.
All dietary requirements and allergies are catered for in a sensitive way through our traffic light approach at mealtimes with highly trained and confident team members supporting your child and their needs. Unrefined sugar and additional fruit are used in our meals to ensure the nutritional balance.
We have a 4 week rolling menu that our fantastic chefs will research and develop throughout the year, reflecting the seasons, from warm, wintery home cooked food to the lighter and more summery dishes. The inclusive menus include a meat free Monday every week, Vegan options provided for each meal and a wide range of dishes from around the world.
We regularly seek feedback from parents and there have been many dishes (and recipes!) requested which helps to ensure there is a diverse menu which facilitates children’s tastes and positive relationship with food.
