Food and Nutrition
Little Treasures Academy is committed to providing a wide variety of food and relevant activities to promote the health and wellbeing of all children within the Nursery. We encourage our children with healthy lifestyle, by providing our little ones with a well-balanced diet. We teach them to make informed and healthy choices and to take part in the many, varied exercise activities provided during the day.

Snack and meal times are happy and social occasions for the children and staff team. Our childcare practitioners promotes a positive approach to food, encouraging the children to experience new food and discuss their choices. Children gain an understanding about healthy eating and the importance and sources of food, all linking to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). As the children progress through Little Treasures Academy they gain independence by serving their own snacks and meals and clearing away their plates. Water is available throughout the day to all our children and milk or juice is served as an alternative during snack time.

Our dedicated chef ensures that our menus present a healthy diet. Children are also given the opportunity to ‘cook’. These guided activities help children to develop their understanding of food, cultures, practical skills, hygiene and safety. They also cover areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), for example developing mathematical awareness by measuring or counting ingredients, recognising colours and using their senses.
