At York Gardens we will support you to help your children develop healthy eating habits which will stay with them for the rest of their lives. We know that the quality of food is a top priority for you and we provide healthy snacks and drink choices in all sessions.
At York Gardens we follow The Children’s Food Trust Eat Better, Start Better Campaign and ‘Voluntary Food and Drink Guidelines for Early Years Settings in England to ensure we meet children’s nutritional needs. This also helps us meet the Early Years Foundation Stage welfare requirement for the provision of “healthy, balanced and nutritious” food and drink.
Snacks will be provided mid morning and mid afternoon.
Your child will be provided with a glass of milk and water throughout the session.
If your child is staying for lunch please provide them with a nutritious and balanced packed lunch. Nursery staff are happy to reheat food as required. Please have a look at our downloads for examples of healthy eating choices. You will be given a copy of our food policy when registering your child.
