Healthy Eating

Babies

For babies who are under 12 months, we are happy to provide the formula milk and/or follow-on milk of your choice, at an additional cost price which will be added to your monthly invoice.  If you wish to be able to bring your own formula into the nursery, we request that formula milk is provided in clearly marked containers with the necessary bottles.  If you are breast feeding your baby, we can also store and prepare expressed milk for you.

We use Avent bottle heaters to ensure that formula milk is heated to a safe temperature and we offer sterilising facilities to ensure bottles are thoroughly cleaned before use.

We are happy to provide a full weaning programme for babies over 6 months and we make all of our baby food from natural ingredients. Should you wish to provide your own baby food, we ask that it be clearly labelled with your baby’s name and it is indicated on the label which meal that it is intended for.

Toddlers & Pre-School

At Muddy Boots we cater for all types of little taste buds and are committed to offering our children healthy nutritious and balanced meals.

Our meals are all freshly prepared on the premises and the menus are carefully planned to provide children with their 5 a day seasonal fruit and vegetables, and are presented to ensure mealtimes are an exciting, enjoyable experience for the children.  Where possible, our food is organic and is sourced from local suppliers.

Naturally, we avoid foods containing high levels of saturated fat, sugar, salt or artificial additives, flavourings, preservatives and colourings.

We are mindful of individual dietary requirements such as vegetarianism and food intolerances, and we ask parents to inform us of any requirements or intolerances during the induction phase, prior to commencing at the nursery. We make every effort to accommodate the dietary needs of children with cultural or religious requirements.  We believe that allowing children to experience food from different cultures is something we pride ourselves on, as we feel this widens their experiences of the world around them.

Mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks are provided which include fresh fruit or home baking. Milk and water is provided for all the children throughout the day.

We follow the nutritional guidelines and advice of the Schools Food Trust and more information and advice for parents is available at the School Food Trust website.
