The EYFS (2021) states
‘The provider must promote the good health, including the oral health, of children attending the setting’. To ensure we meet the oral health requirements of the EYFS we provide healthy snacks two times a day, only serve milk and water at snack and lunch times and teach the children about oral health and how to look after their teeth. We complete activities with the children about oral health and provide resources that can be used within their play to promote good oral hygiene and make it a part of our conversations at snack and lunch times.
