Health & Nutrition

Young children and infants grow and develop more rapidly than at any other time of their life. It is crucial that children are being educated about leading healthy lifestyles and the importance of physical activity and nutrition.

The importance of water

Water is the best form of drink for children under 5 years old. It keeps children well hydrated and contains no sugar. We provide children and babies with water throughout their day as the main form of drink. Fruit juice is not recommended due to the high levels of sugar which can have negative effects on children’s teeth and health. Here at Chantels Kindy we ensure that water is readily available throughout all parts of the day.
