Healthy Eating and Menus
Here at Helen Howes we are proud of our Kirklees Gold Five Star Awards for both our hygiene rating and our healthy options menu.
Our famous cook Linda Maude has been with us for 13 years and works full time with her assistant to prepare all the children’s meals fresh daily on the premises.
We can cater for all special types of diet and are happy to discuss your child’s needs with you.
We purchase all our seasonal fresh produce locally from our village farm shop and delivered to our door maintaining the very highest standard of freshness.
We operate a four-week menu incorporating a daily main meal from each major food group each week. Daily snack options provide a protein, fresh fruit, dairy and carbohydrates for a ‘high energy’ fix until your child’s evening meal.
As a sweet treat nursery baking is the norm and healthy muffins and raisin and oat flapjack are some of the items on offer daily. We do occasionally have a special sweet treat and other than that all our grocery items are no or low salt and low sugar.
A sample of our menu plan is available to download for your reference. Changes to menus may occur without notice.
