At Little Monkeys we encourage a healthy lifestyle through our high quality freshly prepared food, our day to day routines (Inc: teeth cleaning time with Mr. Croc), and all our activities provided for the children. The nursery menus are carefully planned to be both balanced and nutritious. We include the recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables per child each day, most of the lunch time meals have been taken from the National Day Nursery Association cook book and the Caroline Walker trust book. In December 2010 we took part in a government survey called ‘Little Nippers Nutritional survey’ Our results came back fantastic and we took the small amount of advice from the child dietician to create the perfectly balanced menus we provide.

Excellent nutritious homemade food and fruit snacks are served at meal times by our own cooks. Little Monkeys also hold a 5 star hygiene rating from the local authority. See our latest inspection here.
