At Les Enfants meal times are happy, social occasions where children are encouraged to develop good eating habits and table manners, assisting in preparing their tables for lunch and using cutlery. Our children are also encouraged in the use of good etiquette and personal hygiene.
All snacks and meals, along with drinks are provided for weaned children and are carefully planned to ensure that they receive a healthy, nutritious and well balanced diet. We also cater for children with special dietary requirements (within reason). Fresh fruit and milk are also offered as part of their stable diet. After every meal, the children who are old enough brush their teeth with toothbrushes supplied by the Oral Health Project, as advised by our dental hygienist.
We would ask parents of babies who are not yet milk-weaned to provide ready prepared bottles which will be stored and used as required.
Snacks & Meals are served at the following times:
Morning snack: 10:00am-10:15am
Afternoon Snack: 3:00pm-3:15pm
We do not provide an evening meal for children, but are more than happy to heat a home-prepared meal and assist your child with their evening meal if you would like to provide your own.
