Does your child enjoy food more at daycare?
Updated: Jan 10
At Dragonfly's Early Learning we recognise that there are a few reasons why your child could be enjoying their food more at daycare.
Children thrive on routine and at daycare, the routine is very clear, particularly the eating routine. There are set times for meals and snacks. Children are well aware of when food is available and there is no option to ask for food outside these times.
Children sit and eat with their peers which can influence their eating patterns at mealtimes.
Educators sometimes sit with the children as they eat and in this way, play an important role in shaping their eating behaviour.
At Daycare, their options are limited. Children cannot help themselves to the fridge or pantry for whatever they feel like. They learn to take what they get when it is offered and there isn't much room for alternatives.
Daycares do a fantastic job of deciding the what, where, and when of mealtimes
