We believe that all children should be given the best day possible everyday when they are at Guildhall Lane Day Nursery and Pre-School and we will make every effort to ensure that this is done. Our Pre-School operates on a term time basis, offering full day and sessional care including a lunch club, with children bringing their own packed lunch.
What we eat can play a critical role in determining our health, whatever our age. The eating patterns established in the first few years of life influence our health during childhood and adulthood. Encouraging good nutrition during the early years of life is therefore an investment in the health of our population for years to come. With more parents working, increasing numbers of children are spending long periods of time in childcare outside their own homes. This has implications for their dietary intake, as a large proportion of meals and snacks is now eaten away from home. At Guildhall Lane Day Nursery and Pre-School your child will be offered daily snacks that are nutritious as well as yummy. We provide children with Milk and Water and discourage drinking juice or sugary drinks.
There is a wide variety of snacks that children are offered ranging from fruit and vegetable batons to crumpets. Our snack menus are displayed around the setting for you to take a look. All children that are in attendance to lunch club are required to bring in their own ready made packed lunch. We encourage all parents to provide their child with a variety of foods, however we are always on hand to help support parents and encourage healthy eating within the setting. Meal and snack times should be made as fun and stress free as possible. We give children the choice to snack and offer snack bars as opposed to group eating. Children are encourage to help themselves to snacks and drinks as this will not only encourage independence but also help those that find eating times difficult.
