Food & Nutrition

Bumblebee promotes healthy nutritional choices for our children. We believe it is important at this young age to introduce and educate our children about good nutrition and the health benefits of eating well.

We have an onsite Chef who prepare homemade nutritional meals daily using fresh produce from our local butchers and supermarket. Our three-week rolling menu has been developed to ensure that each meal is nutritionally balanced for growing children.  

Children with allergies and special diets will be carefully supervised. Staff are fully aware of all allergies within the setting. Cultural and religious dietary habits are respected.  Parents/guardians are requested to provide details of foods that children can or cannot eat.

 

Babies:

We supply suitable age appropriate baby foods and parents/guardians are required to supply baby formula.   As of recent changes to HSE guidelines. Staff are no longer allowed to mix powdered formula and water on site. Bottles can be made at home brought to Bumblebees and stored in the fridge. We recommend using the pre made bottles.
