Happy Jays York


We do not serve and pre-made or pre-packaged food in the nursery. The meal and snack routine for the day includes:


Morning & Afternoon Snacks



Restaurant Quality Food

We have purchased Thermomix machines that enable us to cook restaurant quality food, with more variation and always prepared from the raw and basic ingredients. We source locally where possible to give us the freshest ingredients.

We like to include the children in the creation of a new menus and will hold sampling sessions where the children will tell us their opinions of the proposed dishes. Current favourites are:

  • Chocolate Brownies

  • Homemade pizza with a selection of toppings – even the dough is made that morning

  • Spaghetti Carbonara

  • Orzo Pasta with Chicken and Pesto (nut-free pesto made in our kitchen).

  • Sausage Meatballs with Butternut Squash and Potatoes

  • Crispy breaded fish

  • Tomato and Haddock Rice

  • Raspberry and Lime Mousse

Snack is a fruit based snack and follows the calorific guidance.

We prepare our own baby foods, these are blended to the right consistency for each child depending on each child’s individual need.


We can cater for any special dietary requirement or allergy. We are a completely nut free environment.
