Mealtimes are a important source of learning. We endeavour to be a positive influence on children’s attitudes and behaviour towards food.
Meal times are an important part of the social life of the day nursery and a time when we can reinforce children’s understanding of the importance of healthy living, along with promoting good table manners and correct use of cutlery.
Pre-School children are encouraged to serve themselves at meal times.
Milk, juice and water is available at meal and snack times, water is always available.
Sufficient time is given for the children to eat and drink in comfort so they may enjoy the occassion.
