I am the Early Years Teacher here at Walton Nursery and Early Years Centre in Liverpool. I recently qualified as a PANCo (Physical and Nutritional Coordinator) through an amazing opportunity provided to me through School Improvement Liverpool who are working extremely hard to educate and support Early Years practitioners in improving the health and well-being of our young children in Liverpool.
Through my participation in the programme I have set up a healthy eating initiative with our preschool children. Our children have loved cooking in the classroom! We prepare freshly made meals and snacks, ensuring children are actively involved in the food preparation and cooking process of the meals we make in class. It’s so lovely to see the children preparing food, becoming familiar with fresh fruits and vegetables and most importantly showing willingness to try the food they have prepared! Here at Walton Nursery and Early Years Centre we are proud to be supporting the health and wellbeing of our children.
