Nutritious meals

At Happy Beans we know that a varied, balanced diet is essential to every child’s development and active participation.  Our approach to meal times ensures any child’s eating habits are developed with patience, understanding and encouragement.

We prepare fresh and healthy meals every day so that children’s body and mind can develop to their full potential.

Depending on the session attended children will enjoy a morning snack and lunch or afternoon snack and tea.Drinking water is available throughout the day. 

 

Seasonal Products Prepared On Site

We use fresh products which enable us to avoid the use of salt, pepper, colouring, artificial flavours and additives. 

As we believe that the organic products are healthier we have a weekly delivery from Riverford organic farm.

We are also able to accommodate special dietary needs such as nut allergies and dairy or wheat intolerance.  Your child’s Key Person will always be available to talk to you to ensure that your child’s dietary requirements are being met.
