Menus

At Mapledene we always aim to provide healthy and nutritional food to our children, being especially aware of the amount of sugar and salt added or contained within the food we serve. Mapledene has been awarded an ‘Eat Better, Start Better’ certificate by the Children’s Food Trust for our achievements in promoting healthier food in nurseries. Our commitment is going to be of a real benefit to Hackney’s children and families. Please see our menu’s below and also why not take one of our Cook’s Sylvia’s recipes at home and let us know how you liked the dish offered to the children.
