Childcare Healthy Eating and Food

We encourage childcare healthy eating throughout our childcare practices in Swinton. Throughout their time at nursery, your little one will get lots of opportunities to prepare their own snacks using fresh ingredients. This helps them to understand where healthy food comes from.

Cooking helps children to measure, weigh and count their way to a healthy meal. Also, helps develop fine and gross motor skills, teaches children about food hygiene, and encourages fussy eaters to try new types of food!

As well as eating delicious food every day, we incorporate healthy food items into a range of learning activities, from sensory play and art to role-play and gardening.

By creating this positive association with childcare healthy eating, we aim to create healthy eating habits in our children that will last a lifetime.
