Food & nutrition
A healthy, balanced diet is essential if children are to have the energy to develop, learn and grow. At Advantage, we take nutrition seriously.
Our experienced, award-winning chef works in partnership with a nutritionist and the nursery manager to create wholesome, healthy and balanced menus which the children love.
Our clever nutritional team fill the children’s main meals with hidden fresh vegetables, as well as a side serving of different vegetables. Babies are provided with pureed versions of the healthy solid foods provided for the older children for lunch and their own dedicated menu for tea.
Drinking Water is available to children all day.
Nourishing delicious meals
Breakfast is provided and includes a selection of cereals, toasts, and milk or water to drink, a healthy mid-morning fruit, a cooked lunch with pudding and tea.
Vegetarians and special diets are also catered for. We are a nut free environment.
Award winning chef
Joao won the NMT Nursery Chef of the Year award. The award recognises exceptional ability to provide well-balanced, nutritious and delicious food, that takes into account the individual needs of children, giving special attention to allergies, sensitivities, culture and food hygiene.
The judges were particularly impressed by how he finds fun and original ways to excite the children about the food that they are eating, and the judges felt he is the kind of person who the children will remember later on in life as he can shape their eating habits for a lifetime.
You have told us how much your children love the food at nursery. Why not enjoy some of the favourites at home too? You can find some of Joao’s recipe on our Facebook page.
