Healthy Eating

A good balanced diet is vital for children to develop healthily along with fresh air and regular exercise.

I am happy to provide all children in my care with healthy snacks and drinks, or to cook/serve food provided by their parents. I encourage children to choose healthy options and to experiment by trying new foods from other cultures. Older children are encouraged to help in the preparation of snacks. I am happy to discuss menus with parents and cater for children with different food allergies and cultural/religious requirements. If your child has any particular dislikes or favourite dishes please let me know. For the younger children I will record what your child has eaten and approximate amounts in the daily contact book. If you have any concerns regarding diet/menu/quantity please do not hesitate to discuss it with me.

I am happy to support you if you are weaning your baby.

I do not permit children to have fizzy drinks. Children are offered water, milk or fruit juices.

I do not encourage children to eat sweets on a regular basis, however I do sometimes offer sweets for special occasions.
