Gold Award for Nursery!1>
In the weeks before Jil became poorly, she had been working with the nursery cook, Julie Mesher, towards an accreditation that would reflect the time and effort that goes into the meals and snacks we provide for the babies and children at Rum Tum Tugger’s Nursery.
I’m delighted to say that Harlow District Council and their partners (Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, Essex Food Liaison Group and West Essex Primary Care Trust) have given us a Healthy Eating Gold Award. This means that we were assessed on Food Hygiene and Healthy Food Nutrition. Adam Sherwood of HDC said that the award represents what we have done to commit to healthy living for our children, giving them the option to eat more healthily.
Sadly, we were unable to attend the reception to receive our award but we’re proud to share it with you through the blog. It also gives us the chance to make sure you are aware of who Julie is. Julie has been part of the Rum Tum’s team for several years, working hard to provide tasty and healthy food for the babies and children and working directly with the children supporting the Key Person team.
