Gorran PreSchool

Nippers Nutrition

Children need a healthy balanced diet, rich in fruit and vegetables for their growth, behaviour and long-term development.

Nippers Nutrition plays a vital role here at Gorran Pre-School Hoglets, providing us with a framework that we use to deliver nutritious food to our under 5's, so that we can help to give the children in our care the best start in life.

We have taken part in Nippers' Nutrition since the early part of 2013, and have managed to achieve and maintain the highest level, providing a well-balanced, varied and above all tasty and exciting snack time for your children. The programme is championed by some of the biggest names in the world of nutrition and Early Years Education, and it is a priceless tool for educating both children and parents on snack and meal ideas.

At Gorran Pre-School we put together weekly menu planners that carefully combine the nutritional elements that your children need for positive mental and physical development. This is delivered as a mid-morning café style snack, where the children help to prepare the food and we all sit and eat together.


We have found Nippers Nutrition to be an incredible source of information, both to better our Pre-School and also at home for our own family mealtimes. By way of a final word, here is a quote from Liz Whitworth at Nippers Nutrition:

"Congratulations on maintaining your Level 5 Award, it is wonderful to know that the Nipper program is welcomed within the setting and embraced by children, staff and parents. You are working really hard to make sure that the children are getting the best quality food they can and much of it is homemade. This is a credit to you both, again, many congratulations"
