Children attending Chalkhouse Childcare services will experience a variety of healthy balanced and nutritious foods. The quality of foods served in our setting is such that we believe it will give them all of the energy they need for a busy day of play, learning and development. All our meals are prepared, cooked and provided on site.
Meals are served family style, so that children can experience the social aspects of meal times, setting the table, collecting and talking about the foods they are about to eat and then helping us to clear away. We do not use high chairs as we do not believe children liked to be strapped in before eating. All children are encouraged and supported by staff to ensure they get the best from our meal times.
At Chalkhouse we believe in educating children about food to encourage them to make healthy choices.We provide a snack at 10 am, lunch at 12, snack at 3 and tea at 4.30. We are able to cater for all nutritional requirements including allergies and religious needs. We are committed to offering the children 5 + portions of fruit and vegetables every day and we encourage parents to share recipe ideas to keep our menu interesting. Al meals are served with water and/or milk that the children are encouraged to access themselves as their independence grows.
