Food and Nutrition


As a day nursery we are very much aware of the importance of providing a positive

influence on children’s knowledge, attitudes and behaviour towards food and a

healthy lifestyle.


The sharing of refreshments can play an important part in the social life of the

day nursery as well as reinforcing children’s understanding of the importance of

healthy living. We aim to provide healthy sugar free snacks and drinks to foster

a positive approach to healthy eating.


We will display a weekly menu on the notice board. We will always reward

children for good behaviour by praising them and giving them a sticker.
