Healthy Eating

A balanced diet and encouraging environment help form healthy eating habits

We treat every meal time as an important social occasion where children are encouraged to share and talk with their friends and teachers.

We support our children to be independent, helping them to self serve and prepare their own food and snacks.

We have a chef who prepares a seasonal rotational menu so your child will get a varied diet that is nutritionally balanced. Where possible we try to use local and ethically farmed produce.

Meals and Snacks

We provide: breakfast, a snack, lunch, pudding, high tea and an additional pudding at high tea. Drinks are also provided.


All Gooseberry Bush menus are produced in collaboration with a registered paediatric dietitian to ensure they are nutritionally balanced.
