Healthy eating for young children and childhood obesity are hot topics in the national news at the moment. On Friday 20th January, South Hams MP Dr Sarah Wollaston and ITV Local News visited our Dartington Nursery to see how Humpty Dumpty are doing our bit to ensure that our children receive a healthy, nutritious and varied mid-day meal.
Dr Wollaston had lunch together with some of our Nursery children and our childcare practitioners and was able to experience for herself how our new menu is encouraging healthy eating and introducing our children to new flavours. Dr Wollaston spent time during her visit chatting to the children about their favourite food. The children explained about their vegetable plot in the garden of the Nursery and talked about how much fun they had planting, growing and eating their own food. Dr Wollaston provided us with some great feedback during her visit and asked that her compliments be passed on to the cook and saying that it was ‘a lovely tasty lunch!’
