We operate a healthy eating policy at preschool. This involves providing a healthy snack to children in both the morning and afternoon sessions along with a choice of milk or water. Details of the day’s snacks are available on the noticeboard each morning.
Children are encouraged to think about the food they eat. They are provided with opportunities for learning about where their food comes from, and are helped to understand the need for healthy choices. For example, we use real fruit and vegetable in our play kitchen for role play.
Parents are asked to support this policy by providing a nutritious packed lunch for children staying for the afternoon session. Our healthy eating policy with suggestions for a healthy packed lunch can be found in the policies section.
