Menus

Care and consideration have been taken to ensure that the children are provided with a healthy and well-balanced diet. All the meals are home cooked by our cook and prepared each day using fresh ingredients. We take into consideration advice from Public Health England regarding concerns around the children’s oral health and tooth decay by ensuring that our meals do not contain added salt or sugar.

Little Steps caters for all dietary needs. Parents should inform the nursery of any special requirements or changes to their child’s diet.
