Food for thought

We all know that food feeds the mind! That’s why we deliver a well-balanced menu of meals and snacks, all prepared fresh daily by our own chef. All children will be offered their five portions of fruit and vegetables every day, taking the pressure off your evenings at home. Take a peek at a typical daily RAFA Kidz menu:

Breakfast

A wide variety of breakfast cereals and toast are available.

Lunch and tea

A nutritious, home-cooked lunch is served daily for everyone to enjoy. A lighter, homemade tea is also provided each day.

Morning and afternoon snacks

A daily choice of snacks such as fresh fruit, vegetable sticks and biscuits will be served with milk or water during the day. A light snack will be served in the afternoon, so your little one’s tummy won’t be rumbling when you come to pick them up.
