During meal and snack times, we will always encourage children to gain an understanding of how food and water is an essential part of growing big and strong. Our aim is to meet the dietary and religious requirements to promote children’s healthy growth and development.
We will ensure that all meals and snacks are nutritious, healthy and balanced. We source low salt, and no added sugar products. Children’s medical and personal dietary requirements are always known and respected (Parents/carers are required to provide details when their child is enrolled into the nursery). Multicultural diet is always offered, to make sure those children from all backgrounds encounter familiar tastes and that all children have the opportunity also to try new food. Dietary rules of religious groups, vegetarians/vegans are known and met in an appropriate way, making sure that they are always respected and valued within the setting.
