Providing a Healthy Diet

Nutrition_1At Stepping Stones we place a great deal of importance on providing children with a healthy, well-balanced diet. Nutrition is very important within the Early Years and we are strong believers in offering the best to our children. We encourage children to eat their ‘five a day’ by offering a variety of fruit and vegetables. All meal times are shared together to encourage social skills and promote children’s independence. We encourage children to experience new foods and say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ to encourage good manners.

Fresh Produce Prepared On-site

Nutrition_12We cater for children’s individual needs and our cooks are happy to discuss your child’s dietary requirements or any food allergies he or she may have. Parents are welcome to contact any of our chefs for menus or to ask for recipes. The cooks are sharing their recipes each month with all parents, please click¬†Our kitchens are operated with experienced and fully trained personnel and our cooks take great pride in the food they provide. All meals are specially made for our children with every age group in mind to ensure they receive a nutritionally well-balanced meal. Meals are prepared fresh on a daily basis and all meat and fish is purchased from local suppliers. The type of food and the consistency depends on the age of the child. Once babies are weaned off formula milk they will go onto pureed food and are given whole milk.¬†Daily menus are designed to incorporate fresh fruit and vegetables so children receive those important vitamins and minerals. We limit the sugar content in our recipes and do not add salt to any of our meals.
