At Oakview we promote healthy eating and value the importance of nutrition. Children, who are dropped in early morning, will receive a nutritional breakfast to help them get the best start to their day.
All Children will get a morning snack, followed by a hot meal at lunchtime, and a evening snack which may be hot or cold. All main meals are provided by Moon & Spoon and prepared daily by our qualified Staff, who also prepare the snack for the Children. Children have access to both milk & water, and fruit, at all times throughout the day. Snacks that are provided for Children are sourced from either Dunnes Stores, Tesco or Aldi.
Moon & Spoon offers a 4 Week Rolling Menu. Items from each menu are chosen in conjunction with the Children, Parents/ Guardians, and Staff so as to best meet the needs and likes of the Children. We inquire about special dietary needs and food preferences upon enrolment of Children, and ensure all Children dietary needs and preferences are catered for.
Meals have a balance of carbohydrates, protein, vegetables, and fruit.
Our aim is to provide a varied and nutritional menu which the Children enjoy. The Children are involved in menu planning weekly, and are involved in meal preperation where applicable, to ensure they have a sense of control over their eating. Parents/ Guardians are sent menu`s monthly and active feedback is encouraged for the planning of upcoming menu`s.
