With growing concerns around childhood obesity and oral health we have a duty to encourage children to eat and drink healthily. A healthy balanced diet and regular physical activity are essential for children’s health & wellbeing. Research confirms that healthy eating habits in the years before school are very important because they influence growth, development and academic achievement in later life.
With this in mind our first workshop is going to focus on menu planning to with Davina De Laszlo - Infant Nutrition Advisor, Public Health & Wellbeing
There will be an opportunity to discuss what a Healthy Eating policy looks like and how to implement it to the children’s best advantage in your setting.
Davina will also share ideas on incorporating a balanced and varied menu to children as well as guidance on portion sizes.
