Diet Policy and Practices

Here at Leo's Den Nursery we aim to provide a varied and balanced diet to suit all children.


During the settling in period we will ask you questions about your child's diet and any allergies, intolerances etc they may have.

We will also be taking notes of any cultural or religious dietary needs your child may have.

All the food provided for the nursery will be freshly cooked using the best ingredients and will provide your child with a part of their daily nutritional needs.

A copy of the weekly menu is available for you to read, and will be displayed on the notice board.

We offer snacks to the children during the morning and Afternoon sessions.

This will comprise of a daily choice between fresh fruit, vegetable sticks, crackers, cheese and raisins etc.

We try to avoid encouraging a sweet tooth in the children, but we occasionally have treats for special occasions, birthdays etc.

If you would like to supply a birthday cake for your child please check that the ingredients are always nut free.

We aim to teach the children the importance of mealtimes, not only for their general health and wellbeing but for the social pleasure of eating and sharing time together at the table; this is a huge part of a child’s development and learning.

At the age of two years we will provide your child with a fork and spoon to eat their meals and will introduce a child size knife when they are rising to three and ready for the preschool room.

If your child is ready to use a knife before this time, we will encourage them to do this.

Please speak to a member of staff if your child is having any problems with their diet or if they have been off of their food at all.

We aim to make mealtimes a pleasant and sociable time for the children , we value your advice into your childs diet and eating habits and will always listen to your request.
