Our Meals and Menus

At Rainbow Nursery, we understand how important it is to establish good healthy eating practices at a very young age. We believe in providing highly nutritious, good quality meals, not only for your child’s health and physical well-being but also to develop their taste buds and social skills involving food.

We prepare all our meals on-site run by our qualified cook. We are currently working towards our Healthy eating award for under 5’s. Hull City Council has rewarded us with a level 5. Our menu is varied and we use fresh produce where we can, and use only ingredients of the highest quality, with every effort made to ensure low sodium and low sugar content.

Whether a baby or in Pre-school, we will provide your child with all the nutrients they need in delicious meals served in a stimulating environment. We have designed our menus to consider all the different stages of your child’s development, ensuring your child gets all their daily nutritional needs.

Our children sit and eat together. They learn the necessary skills for social eating, how to use cutlery, share food, and are encouraged to try new things. Our staff participate during mealtimes by talking with the children, helping them to differentiate between healthy and not so healthy foods.

As well as main meals, we provide snacks of fresh fruit and vegetable. By becoming involved, the children are more likely to taste new foods, and quickly begin to recognise different fruit and vegetables.
