Nutrition

From day one it is important that your child gets the right balance of healthy and nutritious food. This will help your child to start eating the right food early and develop a pattern for life.

Parents of children with special dietary requirements will be asked to provide as much information they can regarding their child’s food.

Parents are also asked not to bring into the créche snacks such as sweets/crisps as this will break their routine of eating at meal times.

Arrangements can be made for special occasions i.e. Birthdays etc. and should be discussed with the Manager of the créche.
