Food at Beeches Day Nursery

We believe that mealtimes should be social, happy times where skills can be developed and foods tasted. Our tasty menus are designed to feed your child nothing less than a completely healthy and balanced diet. We have a 3 week rotating menu which can be seen below:

Meals may be adopted to suit a baby's individual stages of development, introducing a variety of tastes and textures. We ask you to provide sufficient pre-prepared bottles of formula milk, clearly labelled with your child's name.
