Parenting Matters Spring 17 HIGH RES

What makes up a healthy diet? • The more colour the better – fruit and vegetables are low in calories but high in vitamins, minerals and fibre. • Fuel for growth - diets rich in calcium, protein and iron support growth, brain development, and healthy bones and teeth. • Leave out the salt and sugar – There is enough of these naturally occurring in foods. Too much can cause high blood pressure, kidney failure and dehydration in young children. • Super snacks – Children require more regular meals than adults. Regular snacks and fruit support energy levels and concentration. • You choose? - Choice allows children to experience different foods and develop a varied taste palate. Ingredients: • Aubergine • Spinach • Mozzarella • Tomatoes • Fresh basil • Olive Oil To find out more information please contact your nursery manager or Head of Early Years Practice.
