Healthy Eating

At Acorn Park we have a Healthy Eating policy.

Our meals and snacks are carefully planned to provide the children with a nutritious and well balanced diet. We regularly review the meals through monitoring the children's comments and likes and dislikes.

We liaise with our caterers on a weekly basis ensuring all of the children's needs are met.

Each meal is planned to provide a healthy balance of protein, carbohydrate, vegetables and fruit.

A vegetarian meal is available each day and we can provide separate meals for most dietary requirements.

Milk and Water are offered throughout the day.

We are very proud to be a “Smile Too Nursery”.   All of our babies and children, from the appearance of their first tooth, take part in tooth brushing. The staff assist and teach the children to brush correctly.  This is an NHS initiative, all staff are trained and the tooth brushing is self-monitored regularly.

We are also a “Breastfeeding Friendly Nursery”. This is also an NHS initiative. All mums are more than welcome to feed their babies in the nursery and if they would like a quiet place to do so we are more than happy to accommodate.
