The teamAbout us image

Meal times at Buttons are happy and relaxed social times.

There is never a more crucial time in a child's life when nutrition is so important. In their early years children discover new tastes, textures and new likes and dislikes.

We take nutrition very seriously and ensure that every child enjoys healthy and nutritious well balanced meals and snacks, all provided free of charge.

All meals are freshly prepared on the premises by our fully qualified dedicated chef, in our FSA 5* awarded kitchen.
Parents can be certain that the food their children are eating at nursery is freshly prepared using quality ingredients.

We provide children with a diet that meets the nutritional requirements at every stage of their development, which minismise the use of salt, sugar and other additives.

Fresh milk and formula milk are provided free of charge and drinking water is available throughout the day. We welcome breast-feeding mothers and provide refrigerated storage for breast milk.

The menu is rotated every three weeks to ensure variety. All snacks and meals are served with milk or water, with special dietary requirements catered for (vegetarians, allergies etc.) For young babies we provide a variety of pureed fruit and vegetables until they are ready to progress onto the next stage where we provide pureed/mashed food selected from the lunch menu.
