At Dots 2 Tots in our Chatteris nursery we offer our children a well balanced, nutritional set of meals and snacks that are cooked by our dedicated cook on site. Because we prepare most of our food from scratch we can ensure that our food contains the minimum amount of salt and sugar. We source much of our produce locally and where possible use Organic ingredients.
Allergies and Dietary requirements
We are used to dealing with children's food allergies and all kinds of dietary requirements. Just let us know and we'll make sure your child’s specific requirements are catered for.
We always offer a choice of sweet pudding or fresh fruit with our Lunch and Dinner
Our meal and snack times are :
Breakfast 8:00 - 8:15am
Encouraging children to eat
Not all children eat well and we know this can be a headache and a worry for many parents. At Dots 2 Tots we make meal times fun and a social affair. We all eat at the same time (staff and children) and we help and encourage all the children to try different foods.
We will produce a weekly menu on a 4 weekly rota so you can see what your child will eat before-hand. We will always make a note in their daily record book about what they liked and how much or little they ate.
For toddlers and pre-schoolers, we have drinking stations where they gradually learn to help themselves. We often find, however, that bringing in a child's favourite cup can often result in them drinking a little better.
