The nursery provides healthy meals and snacks that meet the nutritional needs of the children. The nursery is supported by our dedicated catering team at Barley Wood, who work within the guidelines of the world leading childhood nutritional research organisation, the Caroline Walker Trust.
Children with Severe Food Allergies
Childhood food allergies are increasing in the UK. The nursery has experience of catering to meet the needs of children who have experienced Anaphylaxis. This condition may be triggered by a number of food types, but most commonly nuts. As in the home environment, it would be impossible to completely guarantee against cross contamination of food. We work hard to source ingredients from trusted suppliers, who provide clear labelling.
We do all that we can to ensure that food is prepared separately and clearly labelled for the specific child. Whilst we do all we can to minimise the risk, we would never give a parent a 100% guarantee. For this reason, staff are trained to recognise and react to the onset of a severe allergic reaction.
