Healthy Eating

At the Maisie Poppins Nursery we ensure that the children have a well-rounded diet and we are the proud recipients of several food standards awards.

The food provided is healthy, nutritious, balanced and freshly cooked in the on-site restaurant, which has been given the highest Food Hygiene Rating by the Food Standards Agency.

As a green nursery, we make environmentally friendly choices that are beneficial to your child. We link this understanding of the ‘world around us’ back to the curriculum for a true understanding of where food comes from.

As well as healthy oatcakes and rice cakes, all of our breakfasts and snacks consist of either non-sweetened, wholesome cereals, organic full fat milk or organic whole fruits, delivered direct from local British farms using electric vans.

The children will enjoy a hot lunch in their own section of the restaurant that is also attended by St Joseph’s staff and residents, all of whom are delighted to have the children there as part of the vibrant community.

We ensure that sensory food aversions and dietary needs, including allergies, are catered for as well as cultural and religious food requests such as halal and vegetarian options.
