Teaching children to lay the table,
use knives and forks and behave well could stop them from becoming obese. Head of
the advisory panel and pediatrician, Dr. Anthony Williams said, "The message
from childcare providers is clear. They want to feed children well and know
that it's vital to start healthy eating habits early, but at the moment they
have no clear advice on how to achieve this in practice. In this report we show
how providers could be more certain that they're meeting their children's
nutritional needs. It would save staff time on researching and developing
menus, and would help parents know what to look for if they want to be sure
their children are well-fed in childcare."
Providing healthy food for children
was the key to their learning and development. Everyone working with children
should be aware about proper nutrition.
