Staying healthy

At Tiny Turners we believe that healthy children are happy children.


All our nurseries have their own on-site chefs who use the finest ingredients to provide nutritionally-balanced menus, with no added salt or sugar. All our kitchens have been awarded 5 star hygiene ratings from the local council.

Our menus change twice a year and are based around seasonal fruit and vegetables, ensuring children get the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. 

 

We cater for vegetarian and other dietary needs. We've provided a sample menu from one of our nurseries for you to see here.

All our nursery cooks are happy to hear suggestions for new meal ideas from parents and often incorporate their ideas in their menus.

Each day we provide a healthy breakfast, lunch and tea as well as a morning and afternoon snack. Drinking water is available throughout the day.


As well as our healthy food policy, we are passionate about promoting a healthy lifestyle.

The children all take part in physical activities, including our annual Sports Days, and enjoy the nurseries' gardens in all weathers!

 

We also arrange visits to the nurseries from a wide range of professionals from dental nurses and school crossing patrol officers to fire and police officers to talk to the children about staying healthy and safe.
