Eating together, because it’s more than just a meal
When it’s time to eat, we all sit together with the children - just as you might do at home, as a family. For us, mealtimes are about more than nutritious food (although that is incredibly important). They are a time to swap stories, strengthen bonds, and deepen relationships - to feed your child emotionally and physically, as well as supporting children’s language and communication skills.
Eating well in the Early Years
Good nutrition is essential during childhood, as it is a time of rapid growth, development and activity.
Did you know some of our nurseries own an allotment?
Some of our nurseries have allotments and bedding areas, in order to grow their own fresh fruit and vegetables.
Promotes a healthier lifestyle
An allotment is a great way to start eating healthier and encouraging a nutritious diet, as well as improving physical activity through our regular walks to the area.
Reduces carbon footprint
By growing our own produce at some of our nurseries, it limits the amount of wasted packaging, emissions from transporting food, and possible chemicals.
Gets children involved
Visiting an allotment is a fun 'day out' for the children, who are bursting with joy when crops are ready to be harvested. This is also a great way to encourage conversation about sustainability.
Seasonal foods and sustainable eating
Instead of eating produce flown in from around the world, we can eat seasonal food grown in the UK reducing our carbon footprint - which is more sustainable.
