Gold Standard Healthy Snack Award

4 July, 2022

The food and drink offered in childcare settings plays an important role in the health of children and can help develop good eating habits to set them up for the best start in life. Childcare practitioners and early years settings play an important role in contributing to the welfare of growing children. Snack times are an important opportunity for children to develop their communication skills, independence, and numeracy.

The Gold Standard Healthy Snack Award recognises and celebrates a quality snack provision within settings. The award is aimed at all childcare providers across Caerphilly. This includes childminders, day nurseries, parent and toddler groups, Cylchoedd Meithrins, Flying Start groups, playgroups and out of school clubs. Gaining this award is an excellent way for childcare settings to show they are fully committed to supporting the children, families and communities they work with to eat well and stay healthy.

We are delighted to announce that since the new Gold Standard Healthy Snack Award was launched in July 2021, 31 childcare settings in the Caerphilly county borough have successfully met the criteria and achieved the award. We hope you will all join us in congratulating and thanking the following settings for all their hard work and dedication to achieve the award.
