I'm really not in the mood but I need to plan the nursery menu for next week. I need some pud/dessert ideas. What kind of things do you, as nursery parents, like seeing on the menu. I've got fruit yoghurt, fruit salad, apple crumble and ice cream but I need a few more suggestions. Bear in mind that all of our fresh produce used is organic so I need to be able to source it.

When I was at school I used to love flapjack and custard.

Can't they just have fruit? Easy to source and prepare, good for them, unprocessed, nutritious.

Rice pudding
Home made cakes/buns - maybe could be a morning activity for the children to make them???

Just fruit is fine WWW, we have fruit at "breaktimes" and fruit salads on the menu. There's always a plate of very popular "finger vegetables" on the table at mealtimes. Raw sugar snaps, carrots, peppers, radishes, cucumber etc. So they get some good unadulterated vitamins with each meal. We're keen to expose their little palates to new tastes and textures and I'd like to try some new tastes/textures. Easy to do with main courses but it's not so easy to come up with new ideas for puds/desserts.

Not sure I'd be happy with ds having ice cream at nursery - but then he is just one. What age are we talking here?

Good call cod, baked bananas are yummy. I like the sound of pure juice jelly with fruit chunks too. Would need to be veggie jelly though. Fruit muffins also sound good. Baking is always a popular activity too hulababy - little floury people

Relieved to report that we now have a chef who is planning the menu for next (and each) week. He'll OK it with me and we'll make any changes needed. Thanks for your help all, it's good to know what appeals to you and your littlies as (nursery or not) parents.

vict17, we're talking 18 months to five years.

I like milk based things... sugar free yoghurts (the litle rachel's organic ones), rice pudding, fruit and custard, semolina.

Also, I don't like giving my daughter anything chocolately! (she's 17 months) and we don't give her chocolate. That would be a big nono for me at the mo!

I don't like my DS getting anything but fruit for pudding at nursery. At home I buy frozen fruit and mix it with bananas and non-sugary yoghurt in a blender. Lovely. I don't want sugary things in nursery because then he comes home on a sugar high.
