Our Menu

Here at Little Bugs we’re passionate about the food our Little Bugs eat. We know how important a nutritious and balanced diet is and we value cooking and food skills. That’s why at Little Bugs we have our own chef, Wayne, who designs seasonal menus to suit the tastes of our children, by preparing tasty meals and snacks full of nutrients and vitamins.

We make sure that each day’s snacks and meals are packed with ten portions of fruit and vegetables. Children are offered two snacks, as well as lunch and tea, which come with a healthy and delicious dessert. Our menus are changed every three months to keep them diverse, seasonal and interesting. We also have themed meals and menus, based on different cultures and countries, to co-ordinate with projects and events covered by our Little Bugs.

Live demonstrations of simple cooking skills, given by Wayne, help our children learn important cooking skills. Our Little Bugs learn about food, how it’s made, and different types of ingredients by safely helping with food preparation, cooking, and even shopping for ingredients.
