Our Menu

Mealtimes should be a happy and social occasion for both the children and staff. Our menus are usually rotated on a 3-week basis. Snack and Tea are prepared by the staff at the Nursery and the delicious lunches are catered by Yum Yum

Yum Yum provides delicious fresh, hot meals to the nursery daily and has been delivering nutritious meals to Nurseries for a number of years. We are excited to announce that Yum Yum has an exclusive partnership with leading children's food expert and number 1 children's cookery author Annabel Karmel, MBE. 

Children will still get to enjoy their much-loved favourites, albeit with Annabel’s added seal of approval! And there will be a range of brand new delicious recipes for children to discover.

At Little Engineers Nursery we:

  • Provide a balanced lunch, tea and daily snacks which include a platter of fruit. The children are given the choice of having milk or water to drink.
  • Follow the children’s dietary needs. These are recorded and put up in the room so they are visible for the staff to see.
  • Ensure all children wash their hands before meals and snacks
  • Staff prompt children in exhibiting good manners at the table, encouraging them to say “please” and “thank you”.
  • Encourage the children to make their own choices by serving up their own lunch, feeding themselves and pouring their own drinks.
  • Encourage children to be social with their friends at the table.
  • Encourage children who refuse to eat their meals.
  • Give more time for children who are slow eaters to eat their meals – they will not be rushed.
  • Take portion sizes into account regarding each individual child’s needs.
  • Provide access to fresh drinking water for all of the children throughout the course of the day.

Please see our menus below along with the breakdown of all the ingredients in the lunches provided by Yum Yum. Our Autumn-Winter is from September to April and Spring-Summer Menu covers from May to August.

If your child has any food allergies, please discuss these with our Nursery Staff.

Additionally, to eating healthy, the children experience outdoor play at least twice a day.
