Florentinum British Nursery & Preschool recognises the importance of providing nutritious foods and reinforcing the importance of eating well and enjoying healthy foods in our children’s lives. Therefore we provide fresh and healthy meals for our pupils every day. The catering available to older children is by a catering company which is certified to supply food for children. Small children are fed with nourishing food brought by their parent’s in closed, certified and signed jars. Dietary requirements such as vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, organic, halal and kosher etc. are available upon request.
The dining area is organised in a child-friendly way which makes it easy and entertaining for children to clean up after themselves. We teach our pupils social skills like sharing common spaces, eating together and keeping the environment tidy and clean.
The beverages are prepared from filtered water, appropriate for children, so they have access to fresh water at all times. Sodas and other fizzy drinks are not allowed to ensure that children acquire the habit of healthy drinking.
