At Oakview Village Childcare we promote healthy eating and value the importance of nutrition.
Children, who are dropped in early morning, may have breakfast at the centre. All children will get a morning break followed at lunchtime by a nutritious dinner, which is provided by Little Dinners and prepared daily for the Centre by our qualified staff. Meals have a balance of carbohydrates, protein, vegetables and fruit. For those children who are being picked up a little later, supper, which may be hot or cold, is served around 4.00pm.
Our aim is to provide a varied and nutritional menu which the children enjoy. By introducing different tastes and textures at an early stage children are not as fussy at eating as they get older. We are also equipped to accommodate children who have special dietary requirements. The menu for each day is on display for parents to see in reception and is also downloadable at:
