Our Menu

At Hickory House we encourage healthy eating by providing freshly prepared food which is cooked daily on the premises.  Our menus are based on a three-week cycle and offer a well-balanced variety of food including a minimum of three portions of fruit and vegetables daily.

We ensure that our meals:

  • Reflect cultural diversity and variation.
  • Parents will be able to see the menus which are displayed on the Parent’s Notice Board in the front entrance foyer.
  • Fresh drinking water is accessible and regularly offered to children and babies.
  • We cater for all dietary requirements as well as all staff members being aware of any food allergies your child may have.

Mealtimes should be a happy and social occasion for children and staff alike,where positive interactions encourage children to develop their social skills.   We encourage children to taste new foods and hope they enjoy the variety we offer.  Occasionally children may even sample their own cooking if they have been busy baking in the morning!

Fresh water is available throughout the day.  Breakfast includes a variety of cereals, buttered toast and jams as well as milk.

For young babies we also have a weaning menu, which we can adapt to suit your babies’ needs.  This is available upon request at the time of registration
