Nursery Kitchen Facilities - Looby Loos - Holmfirth
Food is prepared on the premises in the nursery's own kitchen from fresh ingredients. All food is homemade and fresh fruit and vegetables are delivered locally.
The menus are on a four week rotation. Breakfast is served for all children by 8.45am. All children will then be provided with a mid morning snack which usually consists of fresh fruit together with a choice of milk or water. At lunch time a main meal and dessert is provided. All children who attend a full day will be served a ‘high tea’. This is a two course meal and includes sandwiches, soup, filled wraps/pitta bread together with a desert. We aim to have a range of varied foods with different textures and flavours which cater for all dietary requirements including allergies. Our menus ensure children receive a minimum five portions of fruit and veg per day. We regularly review our menus and have a summer and winter menu which takes into account seasonal produce.
For babies solid food is prepared to suit the individual needs of each child. Weaning starts with freshly prepared vegetable and fruit purees and gradually the introduction of meat, fish, texture and more variety until the children are able to have the standard nursery menu.
The nursery was awarded the gold star healthy choice of food hygiene and healthy options and 5 stars for hygiene. This recognises our commitment to providing a healthy, varied and well balanced nutritious menu.
