Details of what your child has (or hasn’t) eaten will be typed into the daily online diary.
All meals and food is discussed with parents prior to any children attending my settings. I am happy to discuss menus with parents and cater to children with food allergies and cultural/religious requirements. If your child has any particular favourite dishes or dislikes please let me know!
Food Safety and Allergens
Food safety is very important for childcarers because children are a vulnerable group. This means children can be more seriously affected by food poisoning and food allergy than some other groups of people.
