Food Policy 

Under 2's

It is our policy at Pitta Patta Day Nursery not to prepare food for children under 2. This is purely to reduce the risk of a child having an allergic reaction to a food whilst in our care. We believe that by the age of 2, children would have been introduced to most food groups at home so any allergies would be apparent. We ask parents to supply all food for children under 2 and we will store it in the appropriate place and heat and serve all food supplied.

 

Over 1's

When children reach the age of 1, parents/carers can complete and sign a Food Disclaimer Form if they wish the Nursery to provide the the food from the Nursery Menu for children under 2 years old. If a child is unable to have specific meals on the menu due to dietary requirements or allergies parents/carers are required to provide cooked food which can then be heated. Please click here to view the current menus.  A copy of the nursery menu is available upon request.
