Meaford and Meaford Fields Day Nurseries have been busy achieving their Silver Nurturing Health Award. The staff took some of the children along to the awards ceremony in Stafford, where they received their framed certificates and had their photographs taken with the Mayor of Stafford Borough, Councillor Ray Sutherland.
The Nurturing Health Award was introduced in 2011 and aimed at supporting people working in the Early Years sector to provide healthier lifestyles for young children. The nurseries are judged on the menus that they provide to the children- ensuring that they create a healthy, balanced and varied diet. The children regularly use their vegetable gardens to grow many of the fruits and vegetables that are used within their meals/snacks and both nurseries are now working towards their Gold Award!
