Notes:

Nuts are never used in the nursery. A careful record will be made of any allergies or food intolerances your child may have, and displayed in the kitchen and by the dining area to ensure that your child is never offered anything to which they may have a reaction. Food will be mashed or pureed for babies who are being introduced to solid food. All staff have received training in infant and child nutrition.

The above menu may be revised from time to time and vary according to the season. An up to date menu will be displayed in the nursery entrance.
