Laying the Table

A review of nursery food has called for national guidelines on what under fives should eat and drink in early years settings. Laying the Table: Recommendations for National Food and Nutrition Guidance for Early Years Settings in England is the full title of the new report from the School Food Trust, which has also concluded that many children do not eat recommended levels of fruit and vegetables, and that over 20% of children are overweight by the time they begin reception class.

You can read the full text of the report by clicking here. If you're into tables, statistics etc, then the appendix with background data is also available.
