At Monkey Puzzle Nursery 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.
Healthy Body, Healthy Mind!
We offer 3 meals throughout the day and a mid morning and afternoon snack. All the energy your child will need to be active and engaged throughout their day of learning. Meal times are also a learning experience entirely, from the fine motor development of using knives and forks, to awareness of good manners and politeness. Meal times are fun for all and a great opportunity for early years professionals to bond with your child. They are sociable learning opportunities, where we teach children about British Values, with a focus on manners and respect as well as the wonderful range of different foods and how to feed themselves independently.
Our menus have been devised to provide fresh balanced meals comprised of healthy and nutritious ingredients to all children at each meal and snack time. We also cater for all dietary requirements, intolerances and weaning stages for the babies.
