New example menus and recipes have been published to help early years providers plan healthy, tasty meals for young children.
The resources have been jointly developed by the Department for Education, the Department of Health and Public Health England, with advice from a panel of early years and nutrition experts including the British Nutrition Foundation.This series of example menus and associated guidance has been developed to support early years settings (such as nurseries and childminders) to offer food and drink in line with current government dietary recommendations for infants and children aged 6 months to 4 years. The documents include example menus and useful information for early years settings to help show how they can meet the Early Years Foundation Stage welfare requirement to provide ‘healthy, balanced and nutritious’ meals for children. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/example-menus-for-early-years-settings-in-england

Health visitors from the Calderdale PHEYS team were out and about last weekend at a Childminder conference which was attended by both Childminders and early years workers in Calderdale – all around the theme of ‘Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds’.
The team promoted information on Vitamin D, the pharmacy minor ailments scheme and breastfeeding.
The minor ailments scheme particularly prompted lots of interest – this is available for families to access treatment for minor ailments via their local pharmacy and is open to anyone who doesn’t normally have to pay for prescriptions from their GP – for example because they’re under 16, over 60 or on benefits. This reduces GP appointment times and allows those most vulnerable to access treatments at the point of need without being financially disadvantaged.
Look out for the team at future events across the community.
