At Acorn we recognise the importance of nutritional and balanced meals help build the foundation of not only a healthy child but of lifelong food preferences. The majority of children spend a full day with us and so it is important for parents to know that whilst in our care they are being fed freshly prepared nutritionally balanced meals.
Acorn have nearly 30 years’ experience and all 14 members of our catering team can draw on years of experience in preparing fresh food with a home feel that is appealing to the nursery children. They have a really good understanding of the nutritional aspects of an early years diet. They also have a wide knowledge of the allergens and medical conditions faced by young children today and can accommodate these in their food production.
For us, mealtimes are a social occasion. We ensure that for lunch and tea the children are seated, and we encourage self-service. This not only supports our desire for childrens' independence but also helps them to start to understand portion control.
Our food can be traced directly back to the growers and producers.Read more
