We operate a healthy eating snack as part of our healthy eating policy. The children are involved in setting up snack. This encourages them to co-operate and socialise with each other and maximises the children’s involvement in line with our curriculum aims and objectives.
When they have their snack, the children find their own name card and post it in the snack box to show that they have had their snack. They are encouraged to put their used plates and cups in a basin and to clean up any spills.
A menu for the week is displayed listing the range of foods on offer to the children.
If your child has an allergy, intolerance or follows a special diet it is imperative that you let us know so that we can cater for their needs. We ask that you do not give your child any food or sweets to bring into Nursery to protect children with allergies.
Children are encouraged with tooth brushing during group time as part of our “Smile” programme to promote oral health. We achieved our “Smile Nursery” status in May 2007.
