Nutrition

We promote good nutrition and healthy eating habits. The ELC provides food for the children. This means that we will:

  • Plan a rotating four weekly menu that meets the nutritional guidelines and supplies a part of the recommended daily intake for young children
  • Provide alternatives for children with food allergies and intolerances
  • Maintain the centre as a nut-free environment, as far as we are able
  • Provide fresh food, with low fat and low sugar content, as far as possible
  • Provide a variety of meat, chicken and vegetarian dishes
  • Provide a variety of hot and cold dishes
