After lots of hard work by everyone on the Kenwood nursery team, we are thrilled to have received the Trafford Healthy Setting Award.
The Early Years Healthy Setting Award in Trafford has been developed in partnership and consultation with Early Years Service, Health, and Environmental Health and has been created to:
- Contribute to reducing the level of childhood obesity in Trafford by promotion of healthy eating and physical activity within childcare settings.
- Contribute to reducing dental decay by limiting sugary food and drink within menu’s, supporting parents with information on dental hygiene and the importance of regular trips to the dentist.
- Contribute to children’s personal, social and emotional and physical development, as set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage
The award is divided into four areas:
- Healthy Eating
- Safe Food
- Physical Activity
- Emotional Wellbeing
In order to qualify for the award the Kenwood nursery team needed to satisfy detailed guidelines in each area.
