Nutrition at Belmont Farm Nursery School

We know that healthy eating is vitally important for the under 5s. The early years of a child’s life really matter when it comes to lifelong health. What they eat, and the habits they develop around food when they’re young, set the pattern for the rest of their lives.
By encouraging healthy food and eating habits early on, we can encourage and steer children towards the right behaviours, setting them up for healthier futures. By providing healthy and nutritious food, we can also help young children to get the best from their days, improving concentration and helping them get more out of learning and playing opportunities.

Our commitment to early years nutrition

We want you to be confident that we at Belmont Farm Nursery School are committed to providing healthy and nutritious food and the appropriate environment for good nutrition. We have made a commitment to healthy eating in our nursery by working with the Healthy Early Years London. 

All our food is produced fresh daily on site, and we pride ourselves on using seasonal produce. We are also starting our own nursery fruit and vegetable patch, so we hope to be able to use produce from this in our food daily.
