Our Meals

At Playworks Early Days Nursery we pride ourselves in providing the children with healthy, home cooked nutritious meals, prepared and served by our Nursery Cook.


Our Nursery Cook holds a Level 3 qualification in Food Safety and has also undertaken Allergen Awareness Training.


We offer a range of meals and snacks throughout the day, depending on the session of care you choose your child will receive


Healthy Breakfast

Mid Morning Snack 

Hot Cooked Midday Meal 

Afternoon Tea 

We are able to cater for all dietary requirements, your childs individual requirements can be discussed and agreed with the Nuresry Manager when you come to view the nursery or or register your child to attend. 


Our produce arrives fresh at the nursery throughout the week, we do not add salt to any of the meals, we only use natural flavours to enhance the taste. Drinks are readily available througout the session as well as during meal times. Parents and carers of younger children  will be required to provide enough ready mixed formula milk to last the session each time their child attends.


To ensure that mealtimes are a sociable and happy occassion, babies and children are provided with age appropriate plates, bowls and cutlery to encourage and develop the skill of feeding themselves and promote independence. Lots of support, social interaction and encouragement is given by staff during meal times.
