"Its really important to me that meals at The Nest reflect the meals that I offer my own children at home"

Debbie, Owner and manager

The Nest was the first nursery in Brighton and Hove to remove meat from the menu!

Children enjoy our healthy range of meals and snacks. Our menu choices mean that children develop an advanced pallet and become less fussy eaters. To ensure our children have a low sugar diet we do not serve desserts.

We offer breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and all snacks in-between. We are able to cater to any special dietary requirements. Daily meal plans are carefully thought out to ensure a balanced diet of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. 

Breakfast is offered before 8:30am -  we offer porridge, breads or toast, fruit and natural yogurt on a rotational menu.

Lunch is offered at around 1230 and is available to children leaving after 1230. Lunch is a hot cooked meal and is prepared by us or supplied by our provider, Little Tums. We do not serve meat in our menu and we can cater easily for dietary needs and preferences. 

Afternoon Tea is served around 1650. It is available to children leaving after 5pm. This is a lighter, hot or cold meal prepared by us or Little Tums. It includes healthy choices like - selections of sandwiches, wraps, pitta, home made pizza, pastas, veggies and fruit. This is a smaller meal as many parents like to eat their evening meal with their little one. 

Snacks are offered mid morning (1030) and mid afternoon (1445). Snacks include fruit and/or vegetable sticks 

We do not serve desserts at The Nest and we do not add salt or sugar to our meals. 

We offer a home cooked pescatarian menu full of protein, veggies and goodness. 

We are an allergy aware setting and are able to cater for all allergy and dietary requirements. 

Our staff are food and Hygiene trained.

All of our premises have a 5* Hygiene rating.
