What's normal food at nursery?

I was wondering if anyone knew what was 'standard' for nurseries to offer children to eat? Specifically, is it usual for kids to be offered dessert (e.g. chocolate ice-cream, biscuits etc) at every lunch time?
I'd rather my child eat fruit salad for dessert, since this is what he is offered at home (with ice-cream etc reserved for treats, rather than an every day occurrence), but I don't want him to be the odd one out at nursery. Has anyone else had any experience with this?
I do actually make a packed lunch for our child (at the nursery's request), but they still offer him sweets afterwards. Today I was told that, since he ate the sugary dessert they offered, they didn't even bother asking him if he'd like the fruit I packed for him! So...what is normal???
