Food & nutrition

At Thornhill Day Nursery, we believe that mealtimes are an important aspect of developing both a child’s social skills and widening their tastes in food.

All food and snacks are prepared on-site by our own dedicated chef, enabling your child to have freshly cooked and nutritious meals at nursery every day. Children at Thornhill are fed 5 times a day, which includes a morning and afternoon snack.

Balanced, healthy diet

We believe in serving nutritious food to children so that they maintain a well-balanced and are prepared for a busy day of learning and playing. We have an alternating food menu for each week of the month so that children are given a variety of healthy, tasty and nutritious food. When they’re capable, we encourage children to serve food for themselves from our food trays, which helps to develop your child’s motor skills, initiative and social skills.

Dietary needs

All dietary needs are catered for, including any allergies or religious/cultural beliefs. We understand that children may have food intolerance’s and specific dietary requirements, which is why we’re able to offer suitable alternatives to meet your child’s needs.
