Food And Drink Policy

When children are in my care I will provide them with healthy, balanced nutritious meals, snacks and drinks. Fresh drinking water will be available at all times. I will ensure that food is prepared hygienically and safely. I will happily accommodate any child that has special dietary requirements in relation to allergies or religious purposes and respect that parents may have a preference to which foods their child eats.

Food will be stored at the right temperature and the food will be stored appropriately to avoid cross contamination. As a childminder I am required to be registered under the Environmental Health Department and am aware of my responsibilities regarding food hygiene.

Baby change areas and pets will be kept away from food preparation areas, the surfaces will be cleaned with anti-bacterial spray before and after preparing food.

In the event of a food poisoning outbreak I will inform Ofsted immediately if two or more children in my care are affected to comply with regulations, and will do my utmost to investigate why this has occurred.
