Catering & Meals

We encourage children and the staff who support them to enjoy mealtimes and to eat well prepared and nutritious and well cooked food, and to see mealtimes as opportunities for people to enjoy themselves and give time and space to talk about news, events and the days activities. We aim to give opportunities for people to learn skills associated with food preparation and presentation.

  • Children will be encouraged to be independent in their eating and drinking.

  • To understand and record the food preferences of individuals.

  • To understand and be aware of food allergies and to ensure that all staff are aware of these.

  • Employees will be trained in nutrition and diet.

  • All children who have a particular nutritional need will have a full assessment of nutrition and all information regarding the Service Users nutrition will be documented accordingly.

  • Children will be supported to experiment with new things as well as favourite food choices. There will be a limit on fast food and in ready meals and microwave meals.

  • Children will be encouraged to eat food according to their ethnic and cultural background but at the same time supported to enjoy food from other sources.
