Meals and Snack time's At Prime Time Day Nursery

Approach

At Prime Time Day Nursery, we provide our children a well balanced, nutritional set of meals and snacks that are cooked by our dedicated cook on site.  Because we prepare most of our food from scratch we can ensure that our food contains the minimum amount of salt and sugar. We source much of our produce locally and where possible use Organic ingredients.

Allergies and Dietary requirements

We are used to dealing with children's food allergies and all kinds of dietary requirements.  Just let us know and we'll make sure your child’s specific requirements are catered for.

We always offer a choice of sweet pudding or fresh fruit with our Lunch and Dinner 

Meal times

Our meal and snack times are :
Breakfast 7:00am to 8:00am
Snack 10:30am to 11:00am
Lunch 1:00pm
Snack 3:00pm to 3:30pm
Tea/Dinner 5:00pm

Encouraging children to eat

Not all children eat well and we know this can be a headache and a worry for many parents.  At Prime Time we make meal times fun and a social affair.  We all eat at the same time (staff and children) and we help and encourage all the children to try different foods.

Menu

We will produce a weekly menu on a 4 weekly rota so you can see what your child will eat before-hand.  We will always make a note in their daily record book about what they liked and how much or little they ate.

Drinks

For toddlers and pre-schoolers, we have drinking stations where they gradually learn to help themselves.  We often find, however, that bringing in a child's favourite cup can often result in them drinking a little better.
