In line with the EYFS framework for good nutrition, we aim to ensure children receive food and drink that is balanced across the day with meals and snacks consisting of a good variety of different foods. The Children's Food Trust states that to make sure children get a good balance of nutrients, their meals and snacks when aged one to five, should be based on a range of foods from these four food groups:
- Starchy foods
- Fruit and vegetables
- Meat, fish, eggs, beans
- Milk and dairy
Here is an example of a weekly menu at our day nurseries ensuring that children are receiving a healthy, balanced diet while being given the opportunity to explore new foods and flavours. You will need to provide your child's dietary requirements upon registration and ensure you keep this information up to date.
