All eleven Fennies settings will be working their way through the EYN Partnership journey to achieve our Quality Mark. They will be working with Catherine Lippe and Janet Aylott, who will provide tailored support and training to their staff in each of their different settings. Catherine and Janet will be helping the Fennies team to build on the great work they are already doing to focus on nutrition. They will be providing specific support in areas such as menu planning and supporting children with special dietary requirements and allergies.
“At Fennies, we know that nutrition is a key component to supporting children’s development and well-being. Nutrition frames children’s concentration levels and therefore provides a key tool to help with their holistic development. We believe it’s also vital that children, educators and families have a core understanding of what good nutrition is and the benefits it provides in terms of children’s health and well-being.”
