Special Dietary Requirements
Sunflowers Nursery School takes special dietary requirement and preferences very seriously. Children with allergies and dietary needs are provided with an alternative meal or snack. All special dietary requirements are recorded and displayed in the kitchen to ensure that no child is given foods that have been removed from their diet.

Babies
Within the baby facility there is an area equipped for staff to blend or chop the food specific to each baby’s development needs and where milk feeds can be prepared as and when needed. As much as possible the babies are provided with the same food as the other children with the exception of a few dishes that are substituted for something easier to digest. Particular attention to paid to providing the babies and children with as many different textures, tastes and smells as possible throughout the day.
