Childcare Scotland strives to provide well balanced nutritional meals and snacks appropriate to the age of the child. Careful thought is given to a healthy diet.
Home cooked, nutritious meals and snacks are prepared on the premises at most of our nurseries. Where meals are not supplied parents are encouraged to provide packed lunches that are healthy and nutritional. We endeavour to adhere to the guidelines of the National Care standards, Nutritional Guidelines and setting the table . Our menu is also checked by a dietician. We will adapt our menus if any new information becomes available.
We will ensure that all children’s allergies or intolerances are taken into account along with parent preferences. The menu will be adapted to the best of our ability.
At meal and snack times staff sit with the children and help promote healthy eating.
Children are encouraged to develop good eating skills and table manners.
