Free Healthy Nursery Meals

The Free Healthy Nursery Meals (FHNM) initiative has been in place since 2019, supporting you to provide healthy and nutritious food to your youngest learners.

From a recent Cookwise FHNM audit, we have learned what is working well in Southwark and as a result have made some important updates to the FHNM guidance booklet to reflect this observed best practice. The updates take into account, different attendance patterns, practicalities of offering snacks vs. lunch, a child’s dietary intake across the whole day, food security and protecting oral health.

We are very pleased to be able to share the new, improved and accessible guidance with you to help you continue to offer the best for your youngest children. (pdf, 16.9mb)

The guidance has been designed to be viewed on a smart phone, tablet or computer but may also be downloaded, printed off and displayed, whatever works best for you.

We hope you enjoy the new and improved guidance. If you have any questions about it or any aspect of Free Heatlhy Nursery Meals please contact the School Food Improvement Officer
