Healthy eating and menus
At Sunny Hill we are passionate about children developing a healthy relationship with food from an early age. Meal times are a fun and sociable part of the day, where staff sit with the children and eat the same food. We believe that modelling good table manners at the table supports their school readiness.
All children have a mid morning health snack provided by Sunny Hill. This is different each day and may link to the children's learning. For example Hungry Caterpillar food or tasting different foods from around the world. We are mindful of sugar contents in fruit and morning snack is all varied, to encourage children to taste new flavours and textures.
All children are encouraged to be involved with preparing the snack and laying the table.
We are a nut free setting and all dietary requirements are met.
A nutritious and balanced menu is created for the children to experience. We serve traditional nursery food as well as more flavorsome meals such as curries and thai cuisine. Our hot lunches are prepared locally by Chartwells at Kings Bruton and delivered each lunch time.
Those children who stay for our Twilight session are given a High Tea, which staff cook for them on site each day.
