First Steps Nursery

Healthy Eating

At First Steps we pride ourselves in offering the children in our care a healthy diet that takes into consideration their likes, dislikes, allergies etc. We follow North Ayrshire’s Healthy eating plan and the national guidance, 'Setting the Table'.

The children are involved in deciding the menus on offer, making their own suggestions of favourite snacks and lunches.

We ensure we are aware of any allergy or dietary requirement a child may have and take stringent measures to ensure these are addressed.

We offer a snack and milk during the morning session and afternoon session in our 2 - 3 room, and a hot lunch between sessions for children who are with us for a full day. In our 3 -5 room we offer two meals for children who attend all day, and one meal for those attending a half day. Children in the 3 - 5 room are also provided with a snack, fruit and milk. 

We have an on site cook, Elaine Fenney, who prepares and serves all snacks and lunches on a daily basis. Elaine works hard to rustle up meals that children find both attractive and wholesome.
