We are proud to be a family business and where possible we support other local and family businesses like our local butcher in Eynsham. Rather than storing and freezing meats, every week we are reliably being delivered fresh and tasty meat for our children’s healthy focused menus. During this difficult time it has been especially helpful to have such a reliable service, and high quality produce.
At Willow Cottage our children’s menus are meticulously planned to include lots of fruit and vegetables, oily-fish, quality meat and vegetarian options. They are designed to be low in salt and sugar with lots of fibre. Our meat is free range, traditionally farmed and selected for extra leanness. The fish we use is sustainable and responsibly caught. We source seasonal, local, home-grown and organic foods wherever possible and have our own allotment and orchards for English seasonal fruit and vegetables. We do not use any food colouring or artificial preservatives.
Our home-made meals are freshly prepared on site each day by dedicated and experienced children’s cooks. The children really enjoy them and are having their ”5 a day” and more! We thoroughly believe that healthy eating in the early years sets the trend for a future healthy lifestyle. We have won national recognition for our nutritious home-made food, recipes, menus and innovative “fun food education” for the children.
Local businesses support local livelihoods for local families that make up our special communities. Local business can provide good service and experiences and bring personality and character to the area. We encourage everyone to support local businesses.
