Babyhome encourages healthy eating and aims for the children to begin to understand how important it is to have a healthy, balanced diet.
We offer a variety of snacks, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, dried fruit, bread sticks, crackers and cheese, yoghurt, rice cakes and more. We will often provide a special theme related snack and aim to vary the textures as much as possible.
The importance of healthy eating is emphasised and children are encouraged to share their experiences. We promote a balanced attitude to nutrition, understanding the need for the occasional treat as well as an abundance of fresh produce.
There are lots of opportunities for the children to prepare their own snacks, developing their independence. We encourage all children to try new and different foods but no child obliged to eat snack and we never pressure.
We promote drinking water and fresh drinking water is available at all times.
At Babyhome we aim to make Snack Time a happy, social occasion for children and staff whilst ensuring that the standard of table manners and behaviour is consistent throughout the school. Staff must set a good example of good table manners and encourage the children to say ‘Please’ and ‘Thank you’. Conversation is encouraged and praised.
Staff are aware and respect all allergies, medical and cultural differences in eating habits, ensuring similar alternatives are available for those who need it.
Our day nurseries and day centers offer children varied, balanced, dietetic menus adapted to each age.
These menus are prepared and delivered by a specialized company, world leader in its sector and which fulfills all the requirements required by the Luxembourg Ministry of Health. This guarantees strict safety standards and a nutritional balance rich in vitamins.
