Nutrition in the kindergarten
Giving your baby to the garden, parents are worried aboutHow quickly he will get used to new people, new things and, of course, a new menu. Moreover, often mothers complain that the child can not be forced to eat at home, he always has a poor appetite. However, the parents of those children who have been visiting the kindergarten for a long time have probably noticed an interesting feature: they like food in the kindergarten, they sometimes ask their mother to cook cutlets, pancakes, compote "as in the garden." Parents are surprised that their children almost never eat soup at home, and in the garden they have several favorite first dishes.
The catering in the kindergarten is basedon observance of recommended sets of food products, on their optimal ratio and diversity. All the food that is included in the menu of preschool institutions, allows you to meet the needs of children in the necessary nutrients and give the right energy.
Nutrition of children in kindergarten, of course, shouldcombine with the rational nutrition of the house. In the kindergartens in the mornings in the foyer or the reception area on a special stand, menus are placed for the whole day, so parents can study it and, ideally, supplement the houses. Medical workers of kindergartens give their dads and mothers recommendations for cooking dinners and meals on weekends and holidays. In this there is nothing difficult: just read the menu and cook dinner for the baby from those foods that he did not eat during the day in the garden. In those days when children do not attend kindergarten, it is desirable to bring their menu closer to kindergarten.
Remember that meals in kindergartenprovides breakfast, so it is advisable not to feed the children in the morning. If necessary, give the child a fruit or a cup of tea. After a hearty breakfast at home, children, of course, will not want to eat the food offered in the garden. And yet it is often porridge, cottage cheese - a healthy food, thanks to which it is easy to maintain activity and vivacity before dinner. Often the issue of breakfast at home is discussed at parents' meetings, when educators persuade parents not to give children sweets, rolls, sweets from the very morning.
Separately, say about the food in the kindergarten inperiod of adaptation, when the child is rebuilt from a home-like way of life to life on a schedule and in a new environment. The withdrawal from parental upbringing in the team is almost always accompanied by psychological difficulties, and the younger the child, the more difficult it is to adapt. Often during this period, appetite and sleep deteriorate, resistance to diseases decreases. It is very useful at this time that the nutrition in the kindergarten promotes rapid adaptation in the new environment. Find out in advance what is fed in the kindergarten, and more often cook such dishes at home so that the child begins to get used to. Sometimes small children who have only entered the garden, do not know how to eat themselves. Therefore, teachers or nannies often help them if the kids really want to eat. If you refuse to eat, you do not need to force them - so you can form a negative attitude to both stay in the garden and food in general.
Kids pay attention to the design of dishes, ondecoration. In addition, children will never eat hot food, it should only be warm. Workers of the garden gradually accustom the kids to neatness and cleanliness at the table. In the younger groups, parents bring to the garden special aprons that are worn by children during meals, so as not to contaminate clothing. Educators do not rush toddlers, the following dish is served when the previous one is eaten or if the child refused it. Most often a little food remains, so kids are offered an additive.
The food in the kindergarten is always under control, the food is fresh, warm, natural and healthy.
