Through step-by-step information, this course aims to help you:
- understand why it is important to adopt a ‘whole setting’ approach to healthy eating
- be aware of the seven principles that outline national best practice (as outlined in the Children’s Food Trust’s Early Years Code of Practice for Food and Drink) to ensure their approach to food provision encourages children to eat well
- become familiar with tried and tested methods used to adopt a ‘whole setting’ approach to food and drink
- understand how to demonstrate that your setting has an approach to food and drink provision that meets national best practice.
This course is based on the information in sections 5 and 6 of the Voluntary Food and Drink Guidelines for Early Years Settings. The Guidelines have been developed using funding from Government to support early years settings to have a high quality approach to food and drink provision.
