Meal and snack times at Cressington Manor are an important part of the day.
They are a time when children will sit down at small set tables and learn new social skills.
During this time staff with encourage children to taste new food, hold conversations and aid their independence with cutlery around the dinner table.
Cressington Manor is committed to healthy eating and we ensure that we deliver fresh, nutritious meals and snacks to all our children.
We ensure each full day has 5 portions of fruit and vegetables essential for your child's nutritional growth.
All meals are specially prepared each day on the premises in our purpose built kitchen by our in-house Chef.
"Health and well-being are superbly supported through a strong culture of respect and a sharp focus on developing children's understanding of healthy lifestyles and safe practices".
