Nutrition and the Montessori Ethos
At Holly Tree we believe a healthy and well balanced diet is essential to a child’s education.
We provide a healthy breakfast, lunch, tea, morning and early evening snacks and drinks. All meals are freshly prepared on the premises and designed to be full of nutrition and flavour. We never give children raw egg, nut products, sweetened or soft drinks or processed food. Fresh drinking water is always available. Salt is never added to any of the food.
Mealtimes are sociable and children are encouraged to feed themselves. Good table manners are encouraged. Older children are encouraged to serve themselves. We cater for all dietary requirements and work with parents to adapt menus when children have allergies. Please come and talk to us about your child’s needs.
