Our Food

At The Folly we believe that children need to be taught about healthy eating and by starting this at a young age we hope that children will enjoy trying new foods and tastes.

We grow vegetables with the children and regular cooking sessions to help them enjoy food. We provide healthy meals and snacks throughout the day:

Breakfast is provided to children arriving between 7.45am and 8.30am and this consists of toast, porridge or cereal, with a piece of fruit and milk or water to drink.

Snacks of fruit (fresh and dried) and crackers or rice cakes are provided mid morning and mid afternoon, along with a drink – this is included within the cost of fees.

A balanced and nutritious cooked lunch is available, cooked daily by our cook in our own kitchen, using fresh ingredients a typical weekly menu can be found below.

Alternatively, parents may provide a packed lunch. This should not contain sweets, nuts, fizzy drinks, glass bottles or cans.

A cooked tea is offered to children still at nursery at 4.15pm with a drink of milk or water, please see sample menu for details.

As all our meals are home cooked we try to cater for all dietary needs; including gluten free, dairy free, and any other allergies/intolerances your child may have, which we have been alerted to in advance, whilst still trying to provide the child with a nutritious meal.
