Our qualified and experienced cook provides breakfast, a mid-morning drink and snack, lunch and tea. Our cook devises a seasonal four week menu based on fresh, wholesome and healthy food. All food is cooked on the premises with an emphasis on nutritionally balanced meals.
We cater for vegetarians, vegans and children requiring special diets due to food allergies. Dietary needs for medical, religious or cultural reasons are all catered for.
Mealtimes are social occasions where children and staff participate in small groups. Children are encouraged to have an input into meal choices, serve themselves and others. Good manners and conversation are positively encouraged.
Babies who are weaning have their own individual meal plan.
Our well balanced meals ensure that our children have plenty of energy for all their activities. Our mealtimes at Toots are sociable, with adults and children enjoying eating together in a happy and relaxed atmosphere.
As our cook is also a Level 3 Childcare practitioner; she enjoys involving the children in deciding the menus, having group discussions about their favourite food and using vegetables and herbs that they have grown in the garden. Above all we like to give children the message that food is fun and eating with friends is an enjoyable experience.
All staff involved in food preparation hold a Food Hygiene Certificate, and we always achieve “5 Star Scores on the Doors” award from Wandsworth Council.
