Eat Better, Start Better: Nutrition within Early Years Settings

July 27, 2011

Posted by:


The School Food Trust has drawn up voluntary guidelines for nutrition in early years settings. These guidelines are to be used across five local authority areas as part of the government’s ‘Eat Better, Start Better’ programme (introduced as a result of recommendations made by the Advisory Panel on Food and Nutrition in the Early Years and the Tickell review of the EYFS).

As well as developing recipes, menus and a code of practice for early years practitioners, the School Food Trust will also run training for early years settings and children’s centres on how to provide cooking sessions for families. This training is open to all providers, Further details can be found on the Lets get Cooking website.

This site provides brilliant EYFS resources that I regularly use in my early years setting. All the material is bright and colourful and is great to use as part of displays. My class especially like the Elmer the Elephant section!

ELHQ is definitely my first stop for teaching resources for my KS1 class, as they have such a varied choice and the quality of their pictures is always amazing!

I love all the KS1 teaching resources from ELHQ and use them all the time at school (and at home!). The role-play section is a particular favourite, especially all the pirate related stuff.
