At Play B C we know what children eat and drink with us is important. We:
- recognise our role supporting children and their families to develop and maintain a healthy diet.
- promote awareness of a healthy lifestyle.
- model good practice and create an environment which supports a positive attitude to food and drink.
- acknowledge the link between children’s diets and their physical and emotional health.
We ask for packed lunches to be healthy, balanced and appropriately portioned. The Foundation Years has great advice and ideas for parents.
Zebedees cater our hot meals and they follow the “Eat Better Start Better” guidelines for the Early Years. Their menus are planned in advance and reflect a range of cultures, textures, colours and variety too because they are rotated regularly. They have even been able to support us by providing carbohydrate counted meals for diabetic students.
