Healthy Eating


Nursery Healthy Eating Options

At Stepping Stones Montessori Nursery, we believe that a balanced diet is vital for your child’s growth and development. We have a balanced four weekly seasonal menu, source meat from a local butcher and all meals use fresh and seasonal produce carefully prepared by a chef on the premises. We cater for all dietary requirements, and work closely with parents to support all stages of the weaning process.

Healthy snacks are provided throughout the day to ensure the children never go hungry!

Food and nutrition is an integral part of the nursery routine where children learn ‘hands on’ about new and unusual vegetables, spices, herbs, fruits through a variety of activities in the classroom.  

Meal time is all about talking with the children about what they have learned throughout the day and lots of laughter! The Montessori approach means that children serve their friends during mealtimes, pour their own drinks and are encouraged to scrape their plates and tidy up after themselves.
