Snacks – the children can come independently into snacks throughout the nursery session. They follow the routine – finding their own snack card, cup and plate. The children are encouraged to make their own choices and decisions – whether its food or drink. As the year progresses children have the opportunity to create their own snacks whether it’s spreading their own toast or crackers, filling their pitta pocket or making their own sandwiches. Snacks is a great place to join in conversations with others, learn how to make their needs known, think about amounts and quantities and develop manners too!
