Asquith are committed to serving healthy, balanced and nutritious food that gives your child all of the energy they need for a busy day of play, learning and development.
From this week, we have introduced Red Tractor meat into our nurseries. Red Tractor was established in 2000 and has grown to become the UK’s biggest farm and food standards scheme, covering all of animal welfare, food safety, traceability and environmental protection.
We work hard to ensure that children have a healthy and varied diet, encouraging children to experience and enjoy new flavours and textures. This in turn gives them the confidence they need to try new things.
A great way for children to develop their understanding of the world is by planting and harvesting fruits, vegetables and herbs and letting them see the lifecycle in action. Being able to see this process also allows children to have a better understanding of the role food plays in growing up healthy. Growing their own food gives children something to be proud of and encourages them to eat fruit and veg more – they are more likely to eat it if they’ve grown it themselves!
We make every effort to make mealtimes fun and an opportunity to learn. Meals are served at the table as a group, much like how many families would dine at home. Children can learn a variety of skills at mealtime – setting the table, serving themselves, sharing conversation and clearing away afterwards. It also gives them an understanding of food etiquette.
