Setting the Table provides updated guidance and standards for food and drink provision in childcare settings for young children and babies from birth to the age of 5 years.
This Highland Council guidance document provides practical advice to help settings plan snack to meet the needs of 3 to 5 year old children, who have entitlement to 600 hours a year of Early Learning and Childcare.
The guidance is in 5 sections:
Section A: The purpose of snack
Section B: What food should be provided
Section C: Different ways of organising snack time
Section D: Opportunities for linking food provision and CfE Outcomes and Experiences
Settings must make information about allergens contained in snack foods available for parents and carers. A simple format for recording this information is available here.
