Ofsted and water


 Share

Recommended Posts

I don't think Ofsted usually give advice about anything as specific as this. The guidelines Ofsted give us are all part of the EYFS Statutory Framework so it is up to us to interpret this. So for instance you might think about how you were helping to promote children's health and development. You won't find anything saying "Children must drink water not juice"! I hope that helps, but others may be along with other ideas.

Same as above. However we provided a questionnaire to parent/carers and they still wanted us to include juice as an option..

Water available all day, milk, water or juice available at snack time. We are a sessional setting. All other snack choices in foods, fruits, veg are of a healthy option.

Hope this helps.:)

Thanks everybody, I agree just trying to justify it to a mother who I telling me she should have freedom of choice which I do agree with but I said we follow the EYFS and promote healthy eating, also we are a school setting so when they go from us into school it is only water so I want to adopt the same guidelines.

the statutory info says

3.47.Where children are provided with meals, snacks and drinks, they must be healthy,
balanced and nutritious. Before a child is admitted to the setting the provider must
also obtain information about any special dietary requirements, preferences and
food allergies that the child has, and any special health requirements. Fresh
drinking water must be available and accessible at all times. Providers must record
and act on information from parents and carers about a child's dietary needs.
