Food and Drink

For all sessions, healthy snacks are provided as part of the service with no additional costs and lunch for those attending over lunchtime. For those who have agreed a 7.30-8.00 session, breakfast will also be offered with a range of cereals, toast and fruit available. 

Dinner is available for per day £2. This must be prearranged in advance so I can plan accordingly. This will be invoiced monthly as standard alongside childcare fees. If meals are added on with less than 1 months notice, this will be added to the following month's invoice and paid in advance from then on. 

I work with a 4-week rotational menu which will be sent to parents annually and at each review. This will also be available from the Members section of the website along with the Healthy Eating and Nutrition policy. 

If you are not opting for dinner to be provided for your child, please be aware that dinner for my child and other minded children will be served between 5-5.30pm. If your child is still in my care at this time, they will be provided with a small snack so they don't feel left out but don't overeat prior to their dinner at home with you. 

If you decide to provide a packed lunch or snacks from home, please be mindful that my service focuses on Healthy Eating and would therefore ask that you send healthy, nutritional items only. 

----------------------------------------------------

All meals will be served with a potato product either chips (Actifry so no oil used), mashed potato, or a jacket potato as well as a side of vegetables.

Desserts may be served and will be in line with recommended sweet treats or those offered by Tayside Contracts for schools such as brownie or cake with custard, ice cream, yoghurts, fruit salad, rice pudding, frozen yoghurt, apple crumble, a mini muffin, an individual biscuit, etc. Any baking activities and treats will be used in place of dessert for that day. These will not be provided daily.
