Food and Nutrition
Children are encouraged to enjoy mealtimes as a social time with their friends and carers.
We provide breakfast, 2 main meals and 2 snacks a day. Eating regularly ensures children get enough energy (calories) for growth and development. Children are offered milk with breakfast and snack and water with lunch and tea. We have a varied 3 week menu that aims to meet the nutritional needs of all our children.
At First Friends we have a nutrition support coordinator (Yvette Brown) as our cook to supply the children with healthy balanced meals throughout the day.
Yvette also supports the staff and parents/carers to encourage children’s healthy life styles. Children with special dietary requirements will be supplied with alternatives to suit their needs.
