Blog - Nutritious home-cooked meals on the menu at St Petroc's Early Years



We are very proud to be able to offer our children a selection of nutritious meals, using locally sourced meat, fruit and vegetables. Meat is ordered from our local butcher and vegetables and fruit from a local shop (Lansdowne Dairy), and used to create a delicious two week rolling menu which is prepared and cooked on site.


We can cater for all dietary requirements, providing fresh food for our babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. Children are supported to use real cutlery (soft plastic only for children under the age of one).


Due to our extended opening hours (8am to 6pm), we can offer children breakfast, lunch and a light tea for a small charge, plus morning and afternoon snacks free of charge. This has proved particularly useful for working parents who need to start work early, or who have run out of time for breakfast at home. We can provide a selection of healthy cereals and toast in the morning, plus a selection of fresh fruit, including bananas, oranges, berries and pears, plus carrot sticks, cucumber, crackers or breadsticks for morning and afternoon snack.


We know that after a long day at work plus the current cost of living crisis, it's sometimes a challenge to provide a variety of healthy, nutritious meals for your children. With the delicious selection on offer at St Petroc's Early Years, let us ease the burden.


St Petroc's Early Years Manager, Tahira White, says: “Eating a cooked meal at lunchtime together with the other children definitely encourages children to be brave, and experiment with new tastes and textures. Plus it's great practice before they go off to primary school!”
