Healthy Food

At Seedlings we aim to provide children with well balanced nutritious meals and snacks

We have four menus for Monday to Friday which are rotated each week during the month.

These include a choice of cereal and fresh or dried fruit for breakfast, a healthy morning snack, a tasty main course and pudding at lunch time and a different healthy snack in the afternoon.

Click the link below to view all 4 menus. Please be reminded that at times we may need to change the menu on the day according to availability of ingredients. The daily menu is also displayed in the entrance hall.

Menu planning

We plan our menus to offer children a wide variety of food types and ensure they have opportunity to eat plenty of fruit during the day.

A learning experience

“Children skilfully serve themselves nutritious meals…”

Fruit is always provided with breakfast and the morning snack and is often included in our puddings at lunchtime.

In the afternoons we offer various nutritious savoury snacks, often including vegetables or salad.
