    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.

    I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.

    As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

    The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

    All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

    I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.
