Our food

We provide a varied, healthy and balanced diet for your growing child

Every day our cook prepares nutritious meals from scratch to provide your child with a balanced diet in their essential growing years. Keeping your child healthy and well-fed is a key role taken very seriously at The Lighthouse Nursery and we prepare a seasonal 5-week menu reflecting in-season fruits and vegetables and this is made available to Parents in the Parent Portal on BabysDays. Mealtimes are sociable with our children encouraged to adventure and try new foods as well as show excellent table manners. 

Special Dietary Requirements

We are extremely accommodating with bounds of experience catering for different dietary requirements. We have Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten-free alternatives for every meal available on request. Our recipes can be adapted to suit dairy-free, vegetarian, wheat-free or cultural diets

Our Halls farm allotment partners, Local Suppliers & Our Vegetable Patch​

We are in partnership with our neighbours at the Halls Farm allotments and receive a wide selection of seasonal vegetables. We also support the local community by purchasing some of our groceries on the local high street. The Children get involved in producing food from ‘Farm-to-table’ by growing some of our own fruits and vegetables in our vegetable patch
