Muriel Green Nursery – Nursery Kitchen
The professional nursery kitchen say 'We believe that food is a fundamental part of early education.' The tastes a child encounters in their early years can influence their dietary habits and preferences for the rest of their life. There is also an innate link between food and education so we support our partner nurseries to ensure that food and nutrition is a key part of the curriculum.
Our team of chefs, dietitians and Nutritionists are passionate about early years' cuisine, and ensure that all meals and snacks are age appropriate, nutritionally balanced and delicious.
Our meals are prepared in the professional nursery kitchen which is specially designed and equipped to produce healthy meals for pre-school children. This allows us to offer wide range of cuisine and continually introduce new dishes and flavours into our menus. Meals are prepared in our kitchen in exactly the same way as you would at home only with the added benefit of professional chefs and equipment.
Our meals are prepared from the best locally sourced ingredients and are delivered fresh.
Allergies and Special Diets
We take allergy control very seriously at Muriel Green. Therefore, we ask that you provide the nursery directly with medical confirmation of any allergies to ensure that the correct food is ordered and our allergy matrix is kept up to date. We accommodate special diets (vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, etc.) and religious diets (halal, kosher, etc.). If you have a dietary preference please inform us when you start, and this will be catered for.
We do not make adjustments for children’s likes and dislikes. Instead, they have the space to try everything on offer, and leave aside foods they don’t enjoy. Children are encouraged to try a range of food within the menu.
Breakfast Club is an optional part of our Wrap Around Care. Children eat a full spread of nourishing foods, including fruit, toast and cereals.
Lunch Club is for children with us all day, and an optional part of Wrap Around Care for those with us for a half day.
We give children regular, healthy snacks such as fruit and cheese sticks to keep their energy levels steady throughout the day.
After School Club is an optional part of our Wrap Around Care. Children help our practitioners prepare a light, nutritious tea which they eat together.
