When it comes to food, studies show that having a balanced and nutritious diet directly impacts a child’s growth and development. That’s why Nurseries by Gymfinity Kids has asked our expert children’s nutritionist, Sarah, to create all our menus, ensuring our children are given a nutritional and balanced diet.
A bit about Sarah Almond Bushell, the Children’s Nutritionist
Sarah is a Registered Dietitian with over 20 years of experience, honoured by the British Dietetic Association and commended by the Government for her work in nursery school nutrition.
While education is vital in this area, Sarah can also bring first-hand experience of nourishing young children, being full time mum to Charlie and Maisie.
Food for focus
Studies suggest children who are hungry are not able to focus, have a low attention span and exhibit behaviour issues. Therefore, at Nurseries by Gymfinity Kids, we follow the NHS portion guidelines for children at all times.
Greens nourish growth
Good nutrition is important for children to grow appropriately which is why a balanced, healthy and great tasting menu is at the heart of every meal time. This routine of good nutritional eating helps our children grow up to have a healthy attitude towards food as well as how to build better food habits for maintaining a healthy body.
Platefuls of physical energy
It’s also suggested in studies that good nutrition encourages better performance during physical activity. While physical activity plays a huge role in the development of a healthy body, it’s also important for developing mentally and socially.
Your child will eat a balanced diet proven to improve concentration, learning, energy and more.
Our activities and teaching practices are developed around three pillars of excellence: nourishment, development and movement.
A nutritious, balanced diet is one of the key ingredients to a healthy lifestyle, so your little ones grow up with all the energy they need.
Practicing mindfulness develops the whole brain and helps children to understand their emotions with a positive outlook.
