Nutrition and mealtimes

Mealtime should be a happy, social occasion for children and staff alike. Positive interactions are shared and enjoyed at these times. Cliffe House Day Nursery is commited to offering children healthy, nutritious and balanced meals and snacks which meet individual needs and requirements.

We will ensure that:

• Menus reflect cultural diversity and variation. These will be displayed for children and parents to view. Menus will include at least five servings of fresh fruit and vegetables per day.

• Fresh drinking water will be constantly available and frequently offered to children and babies.

• Individual dietary requirements will be respected. We will gather information from parents regarding their children’s dietary needs including any allergies. Where appropriate we will carry out a risk assessment in the case of allergies and work alongside parents to put into place an individual dietary plan for their child.
