    We employ a chef (Gillian, see below) for food preparation and any other staff who handle food are required to gain the basic food hygiene certificate. Our Cook prepares varied and nourishing meals in the nursery’s own kitchen. We cater for all tastes and special dietary requirements are accommodated.

    Eating with a knife and fork is encouraged, as are proper table manners.

    Food Hygiene Rating




    There are certain ‘food rules’ we insist on at Fernhurst Court:

    Food Guidelines For All Children:

    Peanuts and/or peanut oil MUST NOT be used and all packages and tins must be checked so as to avoid these foods.

    Salt MUST NOT be used.

    The practice of frying foods is prohibited.

    Full cream milk MUST be given every day and must be used throughout the nursery years – semi-skimmed and skimmed milk is not used.

    Vegetables should be served daily.

    Food Guidelines For Young Babies:

    Weaning should start at four months. Offer the food followed by a bottle of milk. Children will take whatever milk they require.

    Babies cannot have cows milk until approximately eleven months old.

    From six months babies may have hard boiled eggs and/or well cooked scrambled eggs. Other types of egg are restricted to children over twelve months old.

    Between the age of twelve months and thirteen months each child should be provided with a meal containing an egg to check if they are allergic to eggs before they have their MMR injection. With this particular meal the child should be monitored afterwards to ensure no adverse reaction has taken place. An allergic reaction to eggs will show as swollen eyes, lips and tongue. The results of this test should be communicated to the parents.graphics-food-842258
