Food & Nutrition
Cheeky Monkeys believes in healthy nutrious home cooked food for all our children and we encourage meals and snack times to be a happy social event with staff and children sitting together.
All our food is healthy, tasty and cooked on the premises in a well equipped kitchen using fresh, wholesome ingredients. Wherever possible organic fruit and vegetables are used, however we cannot guarantee this all the time.
