What and how children eat when they’re young informs their relationship with food for the rest of their lives. Each day, the kitchen at Oxhey provides three meals and three snacks that are varied, nutritionally balanced and delicious.
Our food is sustainably sourced by trusted suppliers Apetito. We prepare meals in our kitchen just like you would at home. Our chefs and nutritionists are specialists in early years cuisine and cook nutritious food that children enjoy eating.
Allergies and Special Diets
We accommodate special diets (vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, etc.) and religious diets (halal, kosher, etc.). We take allergies seriously, and adapt to any allergies for which you have a medical letter.
We do not make adjustments for children’s likes and dislikes. Instead, they have the space to try everything on offer, and leave aside foods they don’t enjoy.
Breakfast Club is an optional part of our Wrap Around Care. Children eat a full spread of nourishing foods, including fruit, toast and cereals.
Lunch Club is for children with us all day, and an optional part of Wrap Around Care for those with us for a half day. You’ll find examples of what we have for lunch in the menus below.
We give children regular, healthy snacks such as fruit and cheese sticks to keep their energy levels steady throughout the day.
After School Club is an optional part of our Wrap Around Care. Children help our practitioners prepare a light, nutritious tea which they eat together.
