HEALTHY EATING


    Rainbow has a healthy eating policy and provides the children with two balanced meals and two healthy snack times during the day. All meals are cooked on premises by our own resident cook and provide the children with healthy, balanced and fun foods which include a varied vegetarian option.

    Drinks including milk, water and juice are available at meal times and water is available throughout the day for all children. We do ask parents with babies to provide their own made up bottles of milk to stop cross infection of sterilized bottles. Most dietary needs can be catered for.

    Meal and snack times are:

    9.30 am is toast and milk time
    12 noon is a two course cooked meal
    3 pm is fruit and juice break
    4.30 pm is a two course teatime
