At our preschool nursery, we like to promote a healthy approach to food and exercise. During the time your child is at our preschool, you can be reassured that they’re getting a nutritious balanced diet. All of our food is locally sourced in Southampton and the surrounding areas and freshly prepared daily by a specialised nursery catering company. Meals are tasty and nutritious, and the menus follow recommendations from The Carolyn Walker Trust and Children’s food Trust. Please see the sample menu below.

Occasionally dishes may change to accommodate deliveries and seasonal availability of fresh food.  All allergies and preferences will be catered for.
