Developing a nutrition policy

The best way for an early childhood service to integrate the various considerations on food for the children is to develop a nutrition policy. This can be a separate policy or part of the general health and safety policy of the service.

To assist services to develop or review their nutrition policy, a sample Munch & Move nutrition policy has been posted on the Munch & Move resources page. This can be easily modified to reflect the specific practices at your service.

While you are on the Munch & Move resources page, you might want to check out other nutrition related resources and links for valuable supporting information.
