Nutrition to start the day
2 September 2017
Breakfast is a great opportunity to provide children with essential energy and nutrients that their bodies need to help them function effectively; a good start to the morning benefits learning and development.
Good nutrition and healthy eating is important for everyone – it is especially important in the early years because young children have very specific energy and nutrient requirements.
