Healthy Diets

When parents leave their children with a care provider, often one of their main concerns is whether their children will be well fed. That’s why Tenderlinks Day Nurseries are 100 per cent committed to providing all children with a healthy, balanced diet.

What will your child eat at nursery?
All children will be offered a hearty breakfast, as well as a hot lunch and tea. Fresh fruit and vegetables will be provided with every meal, and healthy snacks will also be handed out at certain times throughout the day.

This sample menu gives you an idea of what your child will be eating each day.

Is the food we serve good quality?
We work with a local specialist nursery food provider, Slice of Pie, to ensure that all of the food that we serve is of the highest quality.

Slice of Pie prepares all the food your children eat at its state-of the-art kitchen in Farnham, which has a 5-star hygiene rating from the Food Standards Agency.

All the food we serve is cooked to order, and is prepared from scratch using fresh, high-quality produce like organic milk and free-range eggs. No salt is added to food and, where possible, Slice of Pie uses ingredients that are locally sourced and additive-free.

Do we cater for children with specific dietary needs?
Yes. Because Slice of Pie is a specialist provider, it has a wealth of knowledge and experience in preparing nutritious meals for children with many different dietary and ethnic food requirements.

Slice of Pie also provides a food rating system, which give parents, children and staff clear, easy-to-understand information about the nutritional content of all the food we serve.
