At our service we believe that good health in the early years helps to safeguard children’s health and well-being throughout life. We believe it is important that children develop healthy eating habits when they first learn about food and activity.
We Treat mealtimes as an opportunity to promote children’s social development, while enjoying food and highlighting the importance of making healthy choices. We encourage families to send their child into preschool with a balanced and healthy snack each day.
Some suggestions for snack time
Sandwiches – Wholemeal, granary bread, pitta bread, wraps, bagels, crackers, rolls, etc. Just
provide small portions.
Fillings – Chicken, ham, turkey, chicken, bacon, hard boiled eggs, tuna, smoked salmon, cheese, jam.
1. Water Drinking water is the best way to quench a child’s thirst. Even better, it doesn’t have all the extra sugar found in fruit drinks and juices, soft drinks, sports drinks and flavoured mineral waters. Children under 5 should drink 1.2 litres per day or about 5 glasses.
