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 cook/serve food provided by their parents. Where
parents provide meals for their children to eat in my setting I will provide
chilled storage for packed lunches and appropriate storage areas for other
foodstuffs. I request that crisps and chocolate biscuits are not packed in the
lunch as this will encourage the other children to ask for those as well. If
you need ideas or advice for the lunch packs please ask and I will be happy to
provide you with some information.
I encourage the 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 then please let me know so that I can incorporate them in our menu.
I will record what your child has eaten and approximate
amounts in the daily record. If you have and concerns regarding
diet/menu/quantity then please do not hesitate to discuss it with me.
I am also more than happy to support you if you are weaning
your baby. I have a blender and am willing to make pureed dishes if required.
I do not permit the children to have fizzy drinks unless it
is a special occasion and parents have given permission. Children are offered
water, milk or fruit juices.
