We have a morning snack available between 9:45 – 10:20 every day. When the weather in nice, we often set up morning snack in the shade of the back garden.
During snack time, your child may be offered fresh fruit, dried fruit, vegetables, rice cakes, crackers, milk, or water. During the Summer term, the children plant and grow vegetables, which they are then given the opportunity to taste at snack time.
We encourage children to make independent choices and to try new foods that they might not have had before. Recently, one child pointed at a pineapple and said ‘What’s that?’ When we explained it was pineapple, he said he wasn’t sure about pineapple but agreed to have a little try. ‘Okay, I’ll take just the one piece so that there’s some left for my friends!’
Families who attend morning sessions are asked to contribute a donation of £5 every half term to cover the costs of providing a wide variety of nutritious snack items for your child.
Children should bring in a named water bottle every day, containing water only. A flask of fresh water is available for refills.
