Nutrition and the Montessori ethos

At Holly Grange we believe a healthy and well balanced diet is essential to a child’s education. 
 
We provide a healthy breakfast, lunch and tea. All of our meals are freshly prepared on the premises and designed to be full of nutrition and flavour. We never give children raw egg, nut products, sweetened or soft drinks or processed food. Fresh drinking water is always available. Salt is never added to any of the food.

Our seasonal menus at Holly Grange Montessori ensure the children receive the right amount of energy and nutrients needed as they grow so rapidly. We believe the informative early years is an ideal time for our children to establish healthy lifestyles and our staff support them in developing an understanding of the importance of physical activity and making healthy choices in relation to food. Encouraging and developing good dietary habits early encourages the children to eat a wide variety of foods to take with them into later life. 
 
Mealtimes are sociable and children are encouraged to feed themselves. Good table manners are encouraged. Older children are encouraged to serve themselves. We cater for all dietary requirements and work with parents to adapt menus when children have allergies. 
 
We are proud to have been recognised for our outstanding menus and have received the Healthier Together award issued by our local authority. This award is based on the principles and guidelines set out in the Eat Better Start Better guidelines issued by the Children’s Food Trust.
