MAY 2019 - SCALLYWAGS RATED AS 5 STARS DURING FOOD HYGEINE INSPECTION
‘We recognise that a nutritious and balanced diet also helps set the foundations for lifelong food preferences - making it vital that children eat well during this period.
Despite this, evidence suggests that the diets of under 5s in the UK are often low in fibre and key vitamins and minerals (such as vitamin D and iron) and too high in added sugars and salt. As a result, one in five children in the UK currently start school overweight or obese.
Children in full childcare can receive up to 90% of their daily food intake from nursery meals, so parents need to be assured that their children are being provided with healthy, balanced food that fulfills all of their nutrient requirements.’

Menus are rotated over a termly cycle to coincide with the seasons. To view our sample menu please visit the Zebedees website.
Vegetarian meals and special diets are no problem and if your child has a food allergy or intolerance, we’ll accommodate it with an alternative menu.
Children are encouraged to partake in our weekly cooking activities and to get involved with the preparation of their food at snack time where appropriate. We also cook for the local homeless shelter ever Tuesday which the children love to get involved in and the guests at the shelter fully appreciate!
