Health and Nutrition Advice

Educating your child's palate

At Cocoon Childcare, we understand how important it is to establish good healthy eating practices at a very young age.  We believe in providing highly nutritious, good quality meals, not only for your child's health and physical wellbeing but also to develop their taste buds and social skills involving food.

  • We prepare all our meals on-site in our purpose-built, Health Board-approved kitchens, run by our qualified cooks.
  • Our menu is varied and we use fresh produce where we can.  We use only ingredients of the highest quality, with every effort made to ensure low sodium and low sugar content.     
  • Whether a baby or in Pre-school, we will provide your child with all the nutrients they need in delicious meals served in a stimulating environment.  We have designed our menus to consider all the different stages of your child's development.  Our menus follow the food pyramid, which is the definitive guide to ensuring your child gets all their daily nutritional needs.
  • We have a menu of 25 dinners and 25 teas which we rotate every 20 days. This ensures a variety of different nutrients and tastes which will help to educate your child's palate.
  • We fully supervise all snacks and mealtimes, to provide a safe, positive and cheerful environment where your child can enjoy their food in an unhurried fashion. 
  • We will adhere to individual food choices or dietary requirements you or your child may have, where possible.
  • We will let you know each day exactly what your child is eating on our detailed report sheet.

At Cocoon Childcare, we pledge to provide the very best nutrition for your child, so that it may be one less thing for you to think about.
