Healthy Eating Policy

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 meals, snacks and drinks, or to serve food you have provided for them.

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 food and meals.

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.

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, they are offered water, milk or fruit juices.

I do not permit children to eat sweets.
