Food Menu

At Acola Kids, we pride ourselves on providing weekly rotating menus, full of seasonal, nutritious and fresh meals. We consider mealtimes to be an important part of your child’s day, not only nutritionally, but socially too.

Our on-site chef provides the children with breakfast, a freshly-cooked lunch, a mid-afternoon snack and a freshly cooked dinner from a menu full of variety, new tastes and flavours. We created our food menu based on the Mayor of London’s Healthy Eating London Programme, which also caters for Halal, Vegetarian as well as any dietary requirements and preference.

Food can help develop your child’s taste buds and provide them with the energy for a busy day full of play, activities, and learning.

By scheduling regular meals and snack times, we give children the opportunity to learn good table manners, promote healthy lifestyles and well being, and understand the importance of fresh food. Through our menus and our fresh fruit and vegetables supplied by local business, we aim to meet the full requirements of the Statutory Framework for the EYFS, by providing nutritionally balanced meals that meet the children’s individual dietary and religious needs
