At Little Einsteins Day Nursery Ltd, we serve interesting, fresh and nutritious meals. All meals are prepared daily onsite in a full catering kitchen, by our cook.
We serve a diverse menu of meals to ensure that all children have their '5 a day' portion of fresh fruit and vegetables. Click here for more information on '5 a day'
 
The menu is carefully planned by our cooks, who take into consideration any allergies or special dietary requests (including weaning). We encourage all parents and carers to discuss any allergies or special dietary requirements with a member of Little Einsteins staff, who will ensure that these requests are catered for. A menu is provided to show the snacks and meals children can have during their stay at nursery.

The menu is changed each term so that children have the opportunity to try a range of different foods, including seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Our meal times are social events where we encourage the children to develop their independence, self help and social skills. 
 
At breakfast time; children are given a selection of cereals to choose from. They are then supported with pouring the cereals of their choice and milk into their bowl.
 
At ‘independent snack time’; children are encouraged to collect a cup, and then choose the snack they would like from a selection which is provided.
 
At meal times; children are encouraged to 'set' the table with a table cloth, plates and the cutlery they will need.  The food is placed in dishes in the centre of each table, and they are then supported to serve their own food onto their individual plates.
 
After breakfast, snack and meal times, children are encouraged and supported to help practitioners to tidy away, by; pouring away their leftover drinks, and scraping away their leftover food into a bowl. They are then supported to wash their own hands and faces, and are reminded to look in the mirror to check that their faces are clean.

Since June 2011, the nursery has been working closely with the NHS dentistry services to gain a highly sought after award which we received in July 2012. The nursery has provided a range of evidence to show that we meet a list of standards relating to; the snacks, meals and drinks provided by the nursery and also the healthy practices we promote to the children. In short, the award recognises the lengths that the setting takes to encourage the children who attend to be healthy.
