Early Years Nutrition Experts
Early years settings provide an ideal opportunity to encourage young children to eat well and learn about food. This not only helps protect their health while young but also sets the foundations for their future health and wellbeing.
Early years settings have the opportunity to successfully support and encourage children and their parents/carers to gain knowledge of how to keep themselves healthy, and evidence of a whole setting approach to healthy eating. We’ve pulled together this resource hub to help early years settings to adopt and demonstrate a healthier approach.
