George Perkins Day Nursery – Nutrition
We provide all food and drink for all but our youngest babies. Breakfast, lunch and a light tea-time meal are provided, as well as 2 snacks. Our menus have been drawn up in consultation with a nutritionist. Special diets can be catered for and we encourage children to be involved in making healthy choices in the foods they eat.
Part of being a Healthy Setting is encouraging healthy attitudes to food for all, children parents and staff and we actively promote the Startwell programme and messages. Hydration is important so every child has a water bottle/beaker that they can access throughout the day; milk is offered at meal times.
