At Children’s House Nursery in Southwell our nursery meals are cooked using a variety of healthy ingredients, some of which are home grown in our very own onsite allotment.
It is important that as well as offering healthy nutritious meals we also nurture children’s understanding and learning on this subject.
We are exceptionally lucky to have an amazing cook, Donalyn, who ensures the children eat delicious, healthy and nutritious meals every day.

Seasonal Nursery Menus
Our nursery menus are changed seasonally to ensure we incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables.
Take a look at our sample nursery menus below to see a selection of lunches, teas and snacks typically available.
Please note: any dietary requirements can and will be catered for.
We have a four week rotating menu, changed regularly to include seasonal produce and variation and to keep our younger generation’s taste buds active and open to new tastes and textures. Special days including Shrove Tuesday, Christmas Lunch and Chinese New Year are also incorporated into our nursery menus.
A fruit bowl is kept in each room and fresh water is available at all times.
Mealtimes are a social occasion and an opportunity for children and staff to interact within our family environment.
Children are encouraged to try new foods and widen their knowledge and tastes. Older children are given the opportunity to select and serve their own food and water, as well as use skills to set the table. We always have helping hands to help set up and clear away, encouraging many areas of learning, including independence and getting children ‘school ready’.
Babies’ home feeding routines are continued in the nursery and we work alongside parents to introduce a successful weaning program.
We’re very proud of our 5 Star Rating issued from Newark & Sherwood District Council Environmental Health Department.
