Our Health and Nutrition Programme

Childcare centres play a formative role in shaping young children’s food habits. YWCA Preschool Singapore ensures
that all meal plans follow the food services guidelines from the Health Promotion Board and provide all children with
the appropriate nutrients necessary for their growing needs.

We cut down fat, sugar and salt and provide plenty of whole grains, fruit and vegetables. Our meals incorporate food
from the four main food groups – fruits and vegetables, meats and proteins, dairy and grains.

We are accredited with the Healthy Meals in Pre-schools Programme (HMPP) by the Health Promotion Board.

Why is Nutrition Important in Childcare?

You are what you eat!

Nutrition is important at every age, but for children, a nutrient-dense diet would not only support young children’s cognitive and physical development but would also help them establish healthy eating habits that a child can apply throughout life.
