This weeks thought…..
Did you know that your baby is still learning as they sleep? Their eyes and ears can rest while their brain is busy and consolidating what they have experienced!
NEWS 19.11.14 – Today we have been looking at our delicious new menus. We will be using the Eat Better, Start Better guidelines to ensure children receive the most up to date nutrition.
This week’s top tip……
Trying new foods with your little one? Put a small amount of new food on her plate and let her see and possibly try it. Even if she doesn’t touch it, still keep putting it on the plate in the future. Allow her to spit it out if necessary, this allows her to take control of what she eats. A new food has to be offered up to 15 times before a child accepts it!!
