A varied healthy diet

Breakfast, mid morning snack, lunch, afternoon tea and late afternoon snack are provided for all fee paying children. (Funded only children have the option to purchase meals). Each nursery has its own cook and all meals are prepared and cooked fresh, each day on site.

Lilliput Day Nursery Characters-13Our menu has been put together with parental input and following the guidelines of the Children’s Food Trust. Fresh drinking water is available in all rooms throughout the day. We promote a healthy diet with the children being able to have a choice of puddings and providing fruit and vegetables at every meal.

We cater for children with special dietary requirements and individual needs are discussed with the child’s key worker, the manager and the cook.
