Our children are provided with a light, healthy snack morning and afternoon.
Involving them in cooking and in the preparation of snacks allows opportunities to learn about healthy eating, food hygiene, and safety when using tools such as knives and scissors.
We encourage parents to contribute food for the children's snack such as mini breadsticks, vegetables that can be eaten raw, or fruit.
Children bring their own drink of water to nursery school in a spill-proof bottle or beaker, so that they can freely access a drink when the wish. At snack time they are offered milk and water.
All of the staff have food hygiene training, which is updated annually.
Our children are taught how to wash their hands thoroughly, and learn that they must always wash their hands after using the toilet, and before eating or preparing food.
