Welcome to Hackenthorpe Hall.

Healthy Eating

nursery food

Meal times should be social, happy times where skills can be developed and foods tasted!

Having a nutritional balanced diet is essential for your child's growing needs, so we try to vary the snacks, dinners and teas as much as possible – new tastes from different cultures is always a wow factor for the children! Our fantastic cook is fully qualified and holds a Food Hygiene Certificate.
