• Food at East Dereham Day Nursery


Good food is integral to our healthy active lifestyle at The East Dereham Day Nursery. Children enjoy cooking and baking at the nursery with firm favourites through to experiencing food from other cultures that run alongside our culture days where we celebrate life and food from around the globe.

Our free morning and afternoon snack times are sociable occasions where the children have the opportunity to enjoy fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables alongside breadsticks, crackers, wholemeal toast or pittas and much more.
