Here at Dryden Street Nursery we have our very own qualified Nursery Chef who creates nutritionally balanced 4 week rolling menus.  Our menus are designed to give your little one the very best start in life. We make this possible by supplying our children with home cooked nutritional food, bursting with fresh fruit and vegetables and all the essential ingredients necessary for healthy physical and mental development.  Whenever possible we source our food locally and organically, including seasonal vegetables and fruit into our menus.  Our children have a choice of milk or water to drink throughout the day.

We believe that meal-times should be a happy, relaxed time where children learn social skills, manners, good hygiene practice and healthy eating habits to last them a lifetime.  To receive copies of our menus or to speak to our Nursery Chef please do not hesitate to contact us.
