  • Our Food

    Healthy eating habits start young!

    At Marigold, we are passionate about serving a wide range of beautifully home-cooked food prepared from scratch in our own kitchen using fresh ingredients. We are also happy to cater for special diets because we know exactly what goes in to our meals!

    Breakfast is a choice of healthy cereal with either whole or semi-skimmed milk (semi-skimmed milk is served to the over 2s). Alternatively we serve buttered 50/50 white and wholemeal toast.

    Water is served throughout the day, and very dilute No Added Sugar juice is offered at lunchtime to the over 2s with parents’ consent. Children brush their teeth an hour after lunch in accordance with current dental health guidelines.
