Food, glorious food!

A sample of the healthy food at Happy Hearts Nursery and Pre-School

The Yum Yum Food Company and food expert Annabel Karmel

We know how important it is for children to stay fuelled on the right foods while they are in our care. We also recognise the importance of introducing a diverse range of delicious flavours to encourage good, healthy eating habits for the future, hence why we have chosen to work with the Yum Yum Food Company on our nursery menus to ensure that we provide delicious and healthy food for the children. Yum Yum has formed an exclusive partnership with the UK’s number 1 children’s cookery author and food expert Annabel Karmel.

We cater for vegetarians, specific food allergies, intolerances and cultural requirements and provide all our children with nutritionally balanced, freshly prepared and healthy food of the highest quality.

Your child will learn and understand about the benefits of eating healthy food at our nursery, and learn good eating habits. Developing good eating manners is of high importance at Happy Hearts.

We encourage the use of correct cutlery and table manners from the youngest age, and how to eat mindfully.

Children also have healthy snacks in the mornings and afternoons that mainly consist of a variety of organic fresh fruit and vegetables. Fresh drinking water and organic milk are available at the school at all times.

“We are committed to our children’s holistic development, we also use mealtimes as an opportunity to extend the children’s learning.”
