At Wyeside day Nursery we know that food plays an important role in a child's physical and mental development. We activley promote healthy eating and source locally produced sustainable products wherever possible.
Portion sizes are controlled to ensure they meet the child's requirements and a balance across all food groups. We can cater for every child's dietary need including the need to be fully or partially tube fed.
We provide whole milk for children under 2 and semi skimmed milk for children over 2 which all comes direct from Bartonsham dairy. The children often visit the dairy to see the cows being milked so they know exactly where their milk comes from. We provide water for all children throughout the day and ensure that they have constant access to their water bottles.
We of course occasionally enjoy a slice of birthday cake or similar but the children are very much aware that foods of these types should be eaten and enjoyed as a treat and not part of a daily diet.
We aim for at least 3 hours of physical activity for all children attending the setting, even tiny babies have tummy time, action rhymes and such to ensure healthy life choices are instilled from an early age.

All of the meats that we use and consume in the nursery are organic and free range meat from Pritchards butchers in Fownhope. It is also Red tractor assured.
We only use milk from the dairy right next door, semi skimmed for all children over two years old and full fat for our babies.
We are proud members of the soil association and activley promote a happy healthy and natural lifestyle.
