Nutrition at Mindful Montessori
We are passionate about the quality of food we serve our children and good nutrition is a major part of life at our Center. Like you, we want the children in our care to receive all the vital nutrients they need to grow healthily. Our Chef provides all our meals, the ingredients of which are sourced from local suppliers. Hot meals are cooked every day in a hygienic kitchen with our supervision, encouraging the children to try and experience various flavours and textures.
It is an endeared practice followed for mealtimes in an Early childhood Montessori learning environment. Family-style dining offers a great opportunity for children to work together to prepare for mealtimes, serve their meals and enjoy mealtime conversations with each other, as well as assist in the clean-up process.
Our meals are nutritiously balanced to cover all of the major food groups, and all meals are cooked fresh on a four-weekly menu rota.
Fresh seasonal fruit and salad are provided throughout the day alongside fresh drinking water and milk. Crucially, we discourage sugary food and drinks at Mindful Montessori and are fully committed to promoting children’s health and well-being.
Allergies and dietary requirements
If your child has any food allergies, we will of course make sure they are provided with alternative options from the menu, and any specific dietary requirements are managed for each child.
