Parents are asked to provide bottles and specialised baby foods for their baby until they are able to eat the meals provided for older children.
On enrolling your child into Victoria Day Nursery you will be asked to provide dietary information. Hopefully, this will enable us to cater for your child and ensure that meal times are happy times. Further to this, the cook will always ensure that the menu is displayed a week in advance so that parents are informed and able to pre-warn us of any problems.

OFSTED 2012 have stated in our 'OUTSTANDING OFSTED' report that 'The children receive a very good range of healthy and wholesome meals. These are made on site by the nursery cook, such as chicken casserole and mashed potatoes. The children successfully develop their self-help skills as they are encouraged to serve their own lunch. Babies and young children are extremely content and settled because their individual health, physical and dietary needs are met to an exceptional standard. As a result, they enjoy their food very much.'
