Mealtimes at Upperthorpe Nursery are so much more than sitting down to have a meal, each mealtime provides the chidren an opporunity to learn, to explore and to work together.
All meals are cooked using fresh ingredients and local produce wherever possible. Our menus are planned to provide appetising, nutritious and balanced diets for the children and always include a vegetarian option.
We cater for children whose family religion or culture requires special diets, and also for special dietary needs such as food allergies and diets prescribed for medical conditions. We are always happy to discuss your child’s specific needs with you and to be as flexible as we can.
Your choice of weaning will be supported by us, please discuss your preferred method with us, baby led for example and we will ensure we support you. We ask that you provide baby’s milk, again we support your choice of either formula milk or breast milk which will be stored in separate refrigeration facilities.
