Freshly Prepared Meals, Every Day

Healthy Eating

England has one of the highest levels of childhood obesity. This is why at The Hunny Pot Nursery, we take healthy eating very seriously.

Eating habits are formed in early childhood and we help form those positive habits. Children are offered freshly cooked food which includes fresh fruit and vegetables daily. Children will have the opportunity to experience foods from different cultures throughout the year as part of their education.

At The Hunny Pot Nursery, we are part of the Kirklees Healthy Meals Initiative.

About our kitchen

Our kitchen is inspected by Environmental Health Officers, (who are employed by Kirklees). The inspection outcome is a score based on a star rating from 1 to 5 with 5 being the highest. At The Hunny Pot, we have always achieved a score of 5.

We have successfully achieved the Gold 5 star award for the last ten years.

Our home-made meals contain no added sugar or salt.

Inspections take place every year.

Mealtimes

Mealtimes are also a time for a learning experience, ranging from using knives and forks (fine motor skills) to awareness of good table manners, and politeness (consideration for others).

Our practitioners will sit with the children and talk with them. They will teach good manners and show children how to feed themselves to become independent eaters. It is the perfect opportunity for the children to bond with their peer group as well as the practitioner.

Breakfast
At the Hunny Pot Nursery, we offer a cafe style breakfast experience to all children, where they can self-select and self serve (under supervision of course).

Lunch
Lunch is served at 11.45 and is always freshly cooked by our own in-house very experienced cook, Yvonne.

Tea
Tea is served at around 3.00 pm. We serve tea early as it allows children to have a family mealtime when they go home. We think it is as important for children to spend at least one meal with their family, where they can sit and talk about their day and generally connect with their family.
