At Cambridge Day Nursery we pride ourselves in providing a healthy and active environment for your child. The growth and development of your child is supported by:
- Five-star kitchen and nutritious food
- A range of physical activities
Below is an example of the menus we provide at Milton Road. We cater for vegetarian, halal and special dietary needs. As far as possible we do not use preservatives, additives or processed foods. We cook without salt and we use fresh meat and seasonal vegetables, prepared daily in our kitchen by our own cook.
"...they give him love, care and individualised attention. Even the chef, who makes amazing, healthy and tasty homemade meals that the kids will eat (even a beetroot beef curry!!!)..."
Mealtimes provide a great learning opportunity; the children serve themselves and sit together, helping to encourage sharing, positive social interaction, table manners and an appreciation of healthy food.
The menus are designed very carefully to ensure a good choice of fruit and fresh Vegetables. Our menus are all about showing the wider world we’re providing tasty, nutritious meals in an environment that creates great social skills.
We are sowing the seeds of good food habits for life through practical cooking and growing activities and food-based learning - both for children and their parents and carers.
Our ‘Food 4 Life’ award has been developed working closely with early years settings and using expert learning from our flagship schools award programme - which has shown through independent evaluation to make a positive contribution to pupil health and wellbeing. Cambridge Day Nursery was awarded “Food 4 Life” during May 2017.
