Healthy Eating Policy

Fitt4kids provides healthy, nutritious and balanced food and drinks during our Holiday club in partnership with the HAF programme. Food and drink are safely prepared with regard to the dietary and religious requirements of the children in our care. We ask parents to notify us regarding any special dietary requirements or allergies when they register their child.

Information regarding food allergies is recorded on the Allergy Information sheet which is visible to staff
