Pre-School settings recognised for promoting healthy eating

We’re delighted that 13 of our early years’ pre-school settings have achieved Aneurin Bevan Health Board’s Gold Standard Healthy Snack Award, supported by our Healthy & Sustainable Pre-School Scheme.

The food and drink offered in childcare settings plays an important role in the health of children and can help develop good eating habits to set them up for the best start in life. Snack times are an important opportunity for children to develop their communication skills, independence and numeracy.

The Gold Standard Healthy Snack Award (GSA) is an excellent way for a childcare setting to show its commitment to supporting the children, families and communities they work with to eat well.

Here they are collecting their awards:
