Parenting Matters Spring 17 HIGH RES

The Professional Nursery Kitchen We believe that food is a fundamental part of early education. The tastes a child encounters in their early years can influence their dietary habits and preferences for the rest of their life. Recent research suggests there is also an innate link between food and education; demonstrating the importance of ensuring young children have a balanced and healthy diet. We are delighted to announce that we will be partnering with The Professional Nursery Kitchen. The Professional Nursery Kitchen provides freshly prepared meals to each nursery setting, ensuring the best quality food for young children. Professional chefs, who are passionate about early year’s cuisine, prepare and create all of the meals, which are then delivered fresh to the nurseries and cooked at each setting. Leading nutritionists ensure each dish is age appropriate, nutritionally balance and delicious. Partnering with The Professional Nursery Kitchen allows us to offer a wide range of meals and continually introduce new dishes and flavours. Introducing children to a variety of new flavours can encourage a more varied diet at an early age and can help to avoid fussy or picky eating. Theresa, Nutritionist at The Professional Nursery Kitchen said, “Children need nearly 40 different nutrients, so the more varied a diet, the more likely it is that children will get enough of everything they need. Young children also need regular meals and snacks to maintain their energy levels, enabling good concentration and increasing their ability to learn.” The Head of Early Years Practice Team at Seymour House is delighted to welcome the new partnership. Jo Nice, Head of Early Years Practice at Gershwin Park said, “Working in partnership with The Professional Nursery Kitchen is a fantastic way for us to promote healthy, nutritious food choices for our children. Babies and young children are lively, active little people who are growing all the time, therefore providing a well-balanced nutritious diet will help them to stay healthy and to have lots of energy.”
