Meal and snack times are an important aspect of the nursery day and encourage social interactions between the children as well as support the development of positive attitudes towards healthy eating habits. As of August 2021 all West Lothian settings will also provide a free meal as part of the expansion of early learning and childcare. Children attending for the full day or the morning session will be offered a cooked lunch and children attending the afternoon session will be offered soup and sandwiches. You may wish to provide your child with a packed lunch instead and this can be discussed at your child's induction visit. Children have the opportunity to be involved in the selection and preparation of a healthy snack during their nursery day.

During the nursery day your child will be offered:

 

  • Breakfast/morning snack - provided at approximately 09:00hrs

 

  • Full Day/Morning Session Lunch - a cooked lunch will be provided at approximately 11:00hrs - 12:00hrs for morning and full day children. There is an alternative choice of a sandwich if your child does not wish anything from the menu.

 

  • Afternoon Session Lunch - provided at approximately14:00hrs for afternoon children (a light snack will be offered to full day children at this time)

 

  • Late snack - at approximately 16:30hrs full day and afternoon children will be offered a light snack i.e. fruit; All meals are served with milk and water. Water is also available throughout the day when your child wishes.
