Guidance on types and amounts of food that meets the nutritional requirements of infants and children.

The sample menus cover a 3 week menu cycle to provide breakfasts, lunches, teas, snacks and drinks for 1- 4 years old in a regulated childcare setting. They also give suggestions of how to adapt them for your younger infants 7-9 months and 10-12 months. 

The sample menus have been planned to meet current government dietary recommendations for children aged under 4 and follow the standards and guidance from the Welsh Government’s best practice guidance.

The sample menus can be used as they are or you can use some of the individual recipes in your own menus to improve the variety and content. Always check that your overall menus have variety and a balance of foods, using the menu planning guidance and action plans.
