Food

We offer our children a well balanced, nutritional set of meals and snacks that are cooked by our dedicated cook on site. Because we prepare most of our food from scratch we can ensure that our food contains the minimum amount of salt and sugar. A two course meal is provided at lunch time and a light tea is provided in the afternoon. Children will also have a snack in the morning and afternoon.

Not all children eat well and we know this can be a headache and a worry for many parents. At Morlo Nursery we make meal times fun and a social affair. We help and encourage all the children to try different foods.

We are used to dealing with children's food allergies and all kinds of dietary requirements. Just let us know and we'll make sure your child’s specific requirements are catered for.


The menu is rotated three weekly so that children receive a varied and balanced diet and you can see what your child will eat before-hand. We will always make a note on their daily sheet about what they liked and how much or little they ate.
