Mealtimes at Ashworth View Nursery

Healthy Food at Ashworth View Nursery

Mealtimes are happy, social occasions for the children and staff, positive interactions are shared at these times. We are committed to offering children homemade, healthy, nutritious and balanced meals and snacks. All dietary requirements are catered for, such as a halal diet, or a diary free diet. Fresh drinking water and fruit are available throughout the day.
We use the ‘eat better, start better’ to plan our menus. We promote self help skills by encouraging the children to serve themselves at meal times.

Golden Grin

We are proud to have been awarded the ‘Gold’ standard in Rochdale councils ‘Golden Grin award Scheme’.

We achieved this by promoting good health and well-being and providing tooth friendly snacks. On special occasions such as birthdays if you bring in a birthday cake we will serve this as a dessert, alternative treats such as stickers or fruit are still welcome.

Teeth Cleaning

As part of our commitment to good oral health we encourage the children to clean their teeth daily.
