Our Munch Bunch Club is our lunch club for all those who stay the full day or choose to simply stay until after lunch and are picked up at 13.30.
We work directly with the wonderful Chilli Bees Catering Company who prepare exciting and very child friendly food that even the fussiest of eaters dig into with glee.
The ingredients are sourced as locally as possible and are all organically farmed/biodynamic and sustainable. No hidden nasties!
We cater to a wide range of diets and the food is delivered fresh to our doors each morning.
The menus are designed over a three week rotation, looking at the varying dietary requirements of the children having lunch and ensuring an exciting variety of foods, tastes and textures. If we find that a 'new recipe' isn't quite to the children's liking, it is changed/tweaked to ensure that our little ones are being given the best that we can offer.
The food is served in individual portions and containers and the children are encouraged to serve themselves, giving them confidence in their autonomy and helping preparing them for 'Big School'.
We are working toward our Silver Healthy Eating Awards.
