Kidderminster Nursery Tucks into Healthy Eating Week

A nursery in Kidderminster has been enjoying a range of healthy foods and snacks as a celebration of June’s Eat Your Vegetables Day. Little Trinity Nursery Manager, Gaynor Carter explained: “The children have enjoyed taking part in picnics in the past and talking in nursery about healthy and unhealthy foods and lifestyles, but this is the first time we’ve held a week-long celebration of Eat Your Vegetables Day and it’s been lots of fun.” Throughout the week the children looked at various foods both healthy and unhealthy, and received sticker awards for eating all their vegetables at meal times, and on their special ‘Picnic Day’ they helped to prepare their very own healthy snacks and made sandwiches and cut up all types of fruits. Adding Miss Carter said: “Throughout the summer the children still follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) standards for learning, development and care, with all our activities designed with EYFS in mind. Involving all the children in the nursery throughout the week has ensured all children have been able to be involved and not just those children who attend on a full week basis. “Learning is fun, and they certainly had lots of fun taking part in our special Eat Your Vegetables Week!”
