Fresh food – healthy food, happy children

Here at First Steps we strongly believe that when children have access to healthy food they are happier. But food isn’t just about sustenance it is also about teaching children where that food comes from, what is healthy food, how it affects their bodies, how it grows, the science behind how we cook food such as the changes yeast makes, the science and wonder of plants growing, teaching children to use their senses…the list is endless!

At First Steps we have our own onsite cook who makes all of our food from scratch using fresh ingredients from our local farm shop. On a daily basis our cook makes fresh bread, soups, puddings and the main meals for the children. Our menus are specifically designed around our children’s needs and requirements and we cater for all types of allergies and dietary needs. She also regularly comes into the nursery rooms to make food with the children so that they can learn how to measure ingredients, mix and bake delicious bread, pizzas and buns.

It is now that time of the year when we start to think about Harvest Festival. It is a time to celebrate all the wonderful food that our farmers produce and to think about those less fortunate than us. So far our children have planted harvest herbs, baked bread, made their own pizzas using autumn colours, investigated acorns and the changing colours of autumn leaves. Next week we will be visiting St Margaret’s church for the Harvest Festival and going to explore the autumn leaves at the Froebelian School’s new nature zone.
