Nutrition

All Banana Moon day nurseries provide well balanced nutritious menus. Meals are prepared on a daily basis and we promise parents that the children are offered their five portions of fruit and vegetables every day.

  • Breakfast – served between 7.30am & 8.30am
  • Morning snack – served at 10.00am
  • Home cooked lunch – served at midday.
  • Afternoon snack – served at 2.00pm
  • Home cooked dinner – served between 3.45pm & 4.15 pm
  • For breakfast we provide a choice of cereals, fruits & toast.

Snacks vary on a daily basis. These consist of fresh fruit, fresh vegetable sticks and biscuits which is accompanied either by a glass of milk or water. Please note we do not serve any processed convenience foods nor do we serve any squash to drink.

The younger babies have a separate menu. Weaning starts with freshly prepared vegetable and fruit purees with the gradual introduction to meat, fish and other textures.

By the time the babies are a year old, we aim for them to be eating the same food as the rest of the nursery.

Wherever possible, individual needs such as religion, special dietary requirements or food allergies will be catered for.
