Here at Glenesk, we believe a balanced and healthy diet impacts on the rest of a child’s day and we place a huge emphasis on fresh and healthy food. Our highly qualified chef uses fresh, top quality ingredients, all of which are prepared in our own kitchen by our helpful and friendly kitchen staff. We aim to promote a healthy diet and lifestyle, avoiding all processed foods and sugar where possible. Provision is made for children with special dietary needs and requirements or allergies.
Nursery children dine in their own room and Rising Reception upwards eat together in the hall, which is laid out as a dining room every lunchtime. Children can enjoy their meal independently with staff supervision, so table manners can be monitored.
For snack, we offer the children a wide range of healthy options, including fruit, vegetable crudités, cheese and other high protein snacks to keep it varied and interesting for the children. All children have access to their own water bottles in their classrooms.

This year, our chef Nonie is introducing monthly themed lunches to tie in with annual calendar events. These special lunches give us an opportunity to celebrate events together and try new foods! Rising Reception children can book on to these lunches as an extra session if they wish to join us.
