Food and Health Guidelines for Early Years & Childcare settings
These guidelines aim to address the shortage of information for the benefit of all Early Years Settings. They are designed primarily to be supportive to all those involved with children in the early years settings. It will help you to work towards both the Desirable Learning Outcomes and the Foundation Phase Framework for Children’s Learning.
The guidance is for providers of Childcare for children up to 5 years of age who provide food, including snacks and drinks. It will apply to a wide range of providers, including local authority nurseries, private nurseries, playgroups, childminders, toddler groups, crèches, family centres and integrated children centres, regardless of the length of time that children spend in childcare settings.
