Being Healthy

Health and hygiene

At Little Gems Foundation Unit we promote a healthy lifestyle and a high level of hygiene with our children and staff. Children learn about health and hygiene through activities that are planned by staff. We have visits from the Dentist every year and this provides children with an opportunity to learn about oral hygiene. They explore the benefits of brushing teeth, the healthy foods we need to eat to keep our teeth healthy and how often we should be brushing our teeth.


Staying Healthy

Children attending Little Gems Foundation Unit will experience a variety of healthy balanced and nutritious foods. We believe the quality of the food will give our children all of the energy they need for a busy day of play, learning and development.  Lunch menus are planned and prepared by R&K catering company who are HMC certified. The menu is displayed on the Nursery noticeboard as well as our webpage.  Little Gems work closely with the catering company’s chef to cater for all children and meet any specific dietary requirements. Little Gems believe in educating children about food to encourage them to make healthy choices. We have a healthy snack menu which consists of seasonal fruits, yoghurt, a range of crackers and much more. The snack menu is displayed on the Nursery noticeboard and our webpage for parents to see.
