Healthy Eating

During meal times the children come together either in the Treetops hall or in our kitchen. We believe that mealtimes provide an opportunity for children to develop social skills and independence. 


After positive feedback from our parents we made the decision in Summer 2019 to become a vegetarian and vegan nursery, preparing all food in-house. Our new menu has been created by Daria, a qualified vegetarian and vegan nutritionist. All staff hold a Food Hygiene Certificate and are trained in safe food handling techniques. We are proud to have received a 5 Star Food Hygiene rating and a Gold Healthy Choice Award from Brighton and Hove Food Partnership.
