Most children attend nursery for a half-day, therefore, meals are not generally provided. However, some children may attend on a full day basis and in those circumstances a meal may be purchased. Children attending wraparound may also purchase a meal.
Snacks and the Promotion of ‘Healthy Eating’
During each morning and afternoon session the children have a snack of milk or water and fruit. Please let the staff know if there are any foods that your child should not have.
Mearns Primary Nursery Class has a policy that any food we supply will be as nutritious as possible. In keeping with this and in order to meet new health legislation, we do not give the children sweets or cakes, and are unable to distribute birthday cake or sweets donated by parents. We promote healthy eating in the nursery and good oral hygiene through daily tooth brushing.
