Encouraging children to eat

Not all children eat well and we know this can be a worry for many parents.  At Mossley Hill Childcare we make meal times fun and a social affair.  We can all eat at the same time (staff and children) and we help and encourage all the children to try different foods without making a fuss.

Menu

We will produce a weekly menu on a 4 weekly rota so you can see what your child will eat before-hand.  We will always make a note on their daily record sheet about what they liked and how much or little they ate.  The menu is displayed daily at the foyer of the nursery. Also displayed is a list of Allergens so you are aware of the contents of our weekly meals that could affect allergies.

Drinks

For Buttercups and Sunflowers, we have drinking stations where they gradually learn to help themselves by looking for their own photos or names on their water bottles. Drinks provided are milk and water only.
