Healthy Eating and Snacks
At Coaley playgroup, snack time is a social time for both children and adults. It provides a time where we can try a variety of new and our favourite foods. In addition to this, we learn new skills such as pouring our own drinks and social skills such as asking, practicing our manners and sharing news with our friends.
We provide a variety of food which covers the four main food groups.
Fresh water is available at all times.
Milk is provided through the Cool Milk Nursery Milk scheme and each child is entitled to 1/3 pint of milk per session. All staff follow the guidelines of Safer Food, Better Business and have a level two in Food Allergy and
Food preparation training.
We display all known allergens contained in the snacks we provide.
At an additional cost, we are fortunate to be able to offer a range of hot school dinners via Caterlink, the catering company for Coaley Academy School each day.
A menu is available and the dinner does not need to be pre-ordered.
If you do not want to order a hot school dinner, parents are asked to provide a lunchbox for their child full of healthy foods.
We are aware of food intolerences, cultural preferences and allergies.
