Nutritious Meals

At Little Dolphins Day Nursery we encourage our children to eat healthy nutritious meals. We regard our snack and meal times as an important part of the day.

All our meals are cooked on site on a daily basis by our cooks with fresh local produce. We like to encourage our children to take part in the preparation of our meals and have an understanding of why we eat healthy foods.

We cater for a variety of tastes and dietary requirements such as: No eggs, Lactose intolerance, Vegetarian, Kosher...
