The EYN Partnership is working to improve the future health outcomes of young children by setting a standard for nutrition practice in childcare settings. We have a team of nutrition professionals who work side-by-side with nurseries and pre-schools to improve their standards of nutrition across a wide range of criteria. Through an assessment and accreditation process, the nurseries and pre-schools are awarded a Quality Mark at a level that best reflects their commitment to delivering the right foods and experiences to support the health and wellbeing of children in their care - providing you with peace of mind. Find out more about our work with early years settings.
We have collated useful resources from credible sources and regularly post blogs full of practical information and tips to help you get nutrition right for your little one when they’re at home – guiding you on what foods to offer, what behaviour to encourage and how best to manage mealtimes as your children grow up. They are full of inspiration!

In 2018, EYN Partnership commissioned a YouGov survey with parents and carers of children exploring how highly they rated nutrition in early years care.
