The EYN Partnership is committed to improving nutrition standards for children in the early years. Nutrition during this critical period impacts children’s healthy growth, development and long-term outcomes. Learn more about the importance of nutrition in the first years of a child’s life.
The future outcomes and lifetime health of young children can be influenced by good nutrition early in their lives. Early years settings play a key role in supporting the nutritional needs of young children and the EYN Partnership is here to support you.
Nutrition in a child’s early years impacts their growth, development and long-term outcomes. The EYN Partnership want to give you confidence that you’re providing your child with the nutrition they need – whether at home or when they’re in a childcare setting.
