The Importance of healthy eating
Abbeywood Tots recognise the significances of children healthy Eating as it affects the children’s mood, behaviour, growth, even their ability to concentrate.
Good nutrition is vital to a child’s health from building strong bones and teeth to the healthy development of internal organs and general development growth.
Educating the children
The best way to educate children on healthy eating is by knowledge and practical fun. Children regularly participate cooking with the chefs and visiting the nursery allotment to gain a better understanding of healthy eating options. It’s exciting, messy and the best bit is trying the food at the end.
On a termly basis we get eggs from the farm and we incubate them in the nursery. Over the course of hatching period – the children get to learn and watch the chicks hatching from the eggs.
We then take a trip to the farm to give them back to the farmer.
