At Monkey Puzzle Surbiton we strongly believe that healthy nursery meals are essential for growth and development in under 5’s. This prompted us to consult with a paediatric nutritionist to formulate a menu that will help give your child the best start in life.
Our delicious and healthy menus are designed by our Chef who aims to ensure that each meal provides a healthy balance to the children. We ensure the children are served/introduced to a wide range of foods, introducing foods from around the world as well as those more familiar dishes. Our puddings consist of home made yogurt with a drizzle of honey for over one’s/ parents permission and fresh fruit. We also offer cow’s/oat milk to drink at each snack time.
As all our food is cooked fresh each day, our chef can tailor each meal to suit any Dietary requirements/preferences as well as those with allergies. We use a traffic light plate/cup/placemat system. Those with allergies are provided with a red placemat and plate highlighting their allergy and what foods are to be avoided. Management are required to check each plate before it is released to the room where it is checked again before being given to the child. The allergy list with the photo of each child is displayed in each room to make sure each staff in the nursery is aware of our children with any allergies. We also have a weaning and vegetarian menu for those who require those options.
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In order to get your children off to a flying start, we offer a variety of non-sugared cereals/gluten free, wholemeal toast and banana. Just enough to fill up their tummies and keep a smile on their face until snack time.
Throughout the day and at nursery meal times we encourage the children to drink fresh water and as a rule we do not offer squash as a meal time drink.
