I have just made a big fuss at my sons nursery and then after research on the internet, I think I might be losing my battle! I wondered if anyone else with children at nursery have the same concern as me. My kids nursery have also said how great the meals are etc and that was one element of why we chose it. However I have just received the menu for the next few weeks and it is full of puddings. Twice a day they seem to have sugary including bread and butter pudding and cream, fudge tart or chocolate crispie cake. Am I the only one who can't understand why any child would need to be offered that at a nursery?? We have always restricted the boys sugar intake as we are a family with weight problems and they didn't have anything sweet until they were 2ish as neither seem bothered by sweets/chocolate or puddings and I have never been asked by either of them for these things. They are very happy to have fruit or yoghurt. I have no been forced to ask the nursery not to give them these puddings as we feel so strongly about it and they seem so totally appropriate and unecessary to be fed this stuff twice (sometimes three times a day). Whipped cream is on the menu for one day which I am sure children have no need to eat! Has anyone else come across this problem? I know lots of parents don't have the same opinion about the sweet issue for children but would be very interested in hearing thoughts.
