Nutrition

 

 

 

 


• Breakfast time: 7.00am to 8.30am. This time is set because the children and staff need to begin the day’s routine.
• Snack time will be enjoyed and socialization and interaction encouraged
• Children with allergies and special diets will be carefully supervised
• Sweets crisps and fizzy drinks are not to be brought into the crèche. If your child is having a Birthday Party in the crèche you may bring in a cake and a reasonable amount of treats as it is important for us to respect the wishes of parents that are not keen on their children having large amounts of sweets.
• We use freshly delivered fruit for snacks.
• We use a company called Moon and Spoon for our dinners. They are healthy and nutritious.
• The menu for the day is posted on the menu board in the morning. The menu board is opposite the kitchen.

 

• Refrigerators will be maintained in a safe hygienic condition and fridge temperature monitored and recorded
• Children will be encouraged to feed themselves as appropriate for their age and development and will be assisted as required.
• Children will never be forced to eat
• Children will be encouraged to help tidy up after snack time
• Cultural and or religious dietary requirements are respected. Parents or carers are requested to provide details of foods eaten (and not eaten) by the child
• Healthy eating is promoted through an arrangement of activities for the children including play, stories, music, outings, cookery etc.
• Fresh drinking water is always available.
• Children will always be supervised by a member of staff and will never be left unattended during snack and mealtimes.
