Public Health England has released guidelines for packed lunches for Early Years Settings.
Please refer to the following website for further information (A paper copy is available at Pre-school).
Public Health England exists to protect and improve the nation’s health and wellbeing, and reduce health inequalities.
Children’s food preferences and eating habits are formed early in life with consequences for a range of health and development outcomes in later life. It is therefore important that the food offered in early years settings provides appropriate amounts of energy and nutrients and encourages the development of healthy eating habits in young children, both to support appropriate growth and development, and as part of national priorities to reduce childhood obesity and ensure every child has the best start in life.
