Nutritional standards

Recommendations exist in the form of nutrient based standards for the amount of energy and nutrients and some foods that should be provided for children aged under five who receive meals and snacks in child care.

As we are all aware every child’s needs are different and dependant on age and gender for which it is important to remember that their requirements will be different. The following recommendations therefore represent average intakes. They are based on percentages of the total daily intake of nutrients required by the ‘average’ child.

All staff are allergen trained.
